Cambridge has dispatched for Guelph and Orangeville for many, many years.

You will have to bear with me I listen to scanner app on iPhone now, 20 years ago I had scanners of my own but wife and kids got in way. I'm guessing something must have been added to live feed recently. Lot more activity in last three weeks

Cambridge CACC has 2 primary talkgroups.
CamSouth for Waterloo Region & CamNorth for what you've been listening to which is Wellington County

You can also include Peel, Georgian and London in that list.

I monitor Waterloo Region EMS (Cambridge CACC). I too have heard an increase in "Call-Shares", and dispatches to Guelph, Puslinch TWP, Orangeville, Stratford,ect. So you are not hearing things. It has only been in the last week or two. I never heard calls/dispatches for Guelph, and I live in Kitchener. It must be to a increase in call volume, or maybe too many units held in ED due to offload.

The dispatches for Wellington County as well as call sharing are nothing new at all, been listening to them for years. Call shares are sometimes enacted for calls that are on the outer reaches of one region or the other. They dispatch a unit from both regions and they continue until they arrive on scene or are called off by the first unit on scene.
