Why live in Kitchener?

Kitchener offers residents an ideal lifestyle blend. This blend includes affordable housing, family-oriented communities, green space, culture, and of course, a thriving economy, which translates to endless job opportunities. Located just over an hour west of Toronto, Kitchener is a lovely place to call home. Starting with the job market, the Kitchener-Waterloo area is known for being a manufacturing and technology hub. Some of the city’s largest employers include Sunlife Financial, Manulife Financial, Allianz Global Assistance Canada, BlackBerry Limited, Equitable Life Insurance Company of Canada, The Gore Mutual Insurance Company, and Home Hardware Stores Limited. It’s no wonder Kitchener’s employment rate is among the highest in Ontario. Plus, the city is home to some of the top universities in Canada, Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo, both of which are also major employers in the region. Beyond the job opportunities that abound here, Kitchener is a relatively affordable option for those willing to live just outside the Greater Toronto Area. Lying approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from Toronto’s downtown core, Kitchener is not considered part of the GTA and yet Ontario’s largest city is still easily accessible. Plus, with the lower cost of living comes more affordable housing, as well as more spacious homes. There’s also the fact that living in Kitchener doesn’t mean compromising on culture or urban amenities. The city is brimming with attractions, like THEMUSEUM, the Joseph Schneider Haus, Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum, the Doon Heritage Village, the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, and Homer Watson House & Gallery. On top of all these perks, Kitchener is also in a prime location for those who enjoy the outdoors. Victoria Park is perhaps Kitchener’s best-known urban park, meanwhile, Huron Natural Area, Stanley Park Conservation Area, and Lackner Woods Natural Area surround Kitchener. The city even has its own ski resort, Chicopee. Whether you love hiking, camping, cycling, skiing, snowshoeing, or snowboarding, you can find a spot to do it in Kitchener.

Next, when it comes time to attend post-secondary school, residents of Kitchener have plenty of options right at home. The two largest universities in the area are Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo.

If you prefer to get around by car, Kitchener is well situated at the crossroads of several highways, including Highway 8, Highway 7, Highway 403, and Highway 401. Moving on to healthcare. Healthcare infrastructure in Kitchener is also top-notch, with the city boasting two hospitals, Grand River Hospital and St. Mary’s General Hospital. In cases of emergency or if you are in need of a specialist, Kitchener residents also have access to Toronto’s many healthcare facilities, which are among the best in the country. These include Toronto General Hospital, North York General Hospital, Mount Sinai Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Health Centre, Humber River Hospital, and the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)
