Kitchener

Welcome to...

Kitchener, Ontario

The place I call home! Living in Kitchener, you can expect a small-town vibe, with big city dreams. Thriving with diversity & innovation, there are endless opportunities for work, education & pleasure through an exciting spread of industries. A big part of Kitchener’s identity stems from it’s German heritage, but much of it’s modern appeal comes from its booming tech sector, the arts & culture scene, entrepreneurial spirit, post-secondary schools & ideal location.

Kitchener is considered to be part of the Tri-Cities which ties together Waterloo, Cambridge & Kitchener, with several main routes to get you where you need to go. The Conestoga Parkway connects the Tri-Cities & smaller Waterloo Region towns, as well as Stratford (hey Justin Bieber!), about 45 minutes away. Guelph is another neighbouring city, located about 25 minutes away. The 401 Highway also conveniently connects you with Woodstock, London & the Greater Toronto Area (about an hour & a half away!)
