Long Description:ABOUT WELLAND:
"Welland (2006 population 50,331) is a city in the Regional Municipality of Niagara in Southern Ontario, Canada.

The city is notable for its large francophone population. Welland is one of few communities in southern Ontario where the percentage of Franco-Ontarians exceeds the overall provincial average. This, however, is proportionately speaking, as English still predominates.

Welland's nickname is The Rose City. Residents of the city are known as Wellanders."
