Old Quebec Street Shoppes
We’re back! And celebrating our lucky 13th anniversary!
The eMERGE EcoMarket is a sustainability expo showcasing environmental organizations, green products and services. It attracts up to 5,000 people looking for ways to fight climate change, reduce their impact on the environment and save money.
Located in Downtown Guelph’s Old Quebec Street Shoppes (map), the EcoMarket is open to the public and free of charge.
Join us to discover everything from electric vehicles to low flush toilets! Engage with activist groups, learn about new green initiatives, interact with sustainable technology, ask questions, and support local businesses!
Do gas prices have you down? When active or public transport aren’t an option, and with gas prices becoming unaffordable, electric vehicles (EVs) are an excellent alternative. Learn about electric vehicle ownership at this year’s eMERGE EcoMarket. It will familiarize you with a variety of EVs and provide you with the opportunity to ask owners questions about their vehicles.
We celebrate coming together as a community to fight climate change, but we have to band together to keep each other healthy too. eMERGE is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Learn how we’re adapting this year’s EcoMarket to be safe and fun for everyone!
eMERGE is a Non-Profit organization based in Guelph with one simple goal: fighting climate change. We aim to do this by building a healthier community and a more resilient and sustainable local economy for Guelph through reducing energy and water use and helping create important policy changes. As a part of this, we offer free Home Tune-Ups to create a tailored plan for households to cut down on water and gas use. We promote and support sustainable behaviour for individuals while working on a larger scale to implement green policies. One of eMERGE’s many goals is to help Guelph achieve 100% renewable energy long before 2050.
