LIVING HERE IS EASY,
EVERYTHING IS 15 MINUTES AWAY
It’s easy to put down roots in a place that feels like a real community. Where you can actually spend time with family, friends and neighbours. Where your valuable time isn’t spent commuting. So go ahead. Walk your dog at lunchtime, get to your kid’s game, or try that restaurant you’ve been dying to check out. You really can do it all in Waterloo.
As the largest of the three Regional cities, Kitchener offers endless engaging experiences. With a burgeoning local arts scene, beautiful nature areas and a vibrant downtown that seems to have a new condo, business or restaurant opening every week, there is always something to discover in Kitchener.
Home to renowned post-secondary institutions, global think tanks and major employers, the City of Waterloo is alive with innovation. From independent gastro pubs and unique cafes to international conferences and pop-up farmers markets, Waterloo is a dynamic and energetic community of makers.
Cambridge is a unique city with a history all its own. Made up of three smaller towns, Cambridge is a scenic community along the Grand River with a rich architectural heritage. Maintaining three unique downtown cores, Cambridge is alive with shops, cafes and community events for the whole family.
