Small-town vibes, big-city impact. Waterloo’s thriving startup scene, community feel, and affordable real estate make work-life harmony a reality.

Quality of life

Spend more time doing what you love and less time getting there. Quick access to major sporting events, concerts, theatre, wine country, freshwater beaches, and rolling countryside means communing with nature, not commuting to it.

Community of makers

Waterloo is the innovation hub of a grassroots tech, art, and culinary renaissance. With a new startup founded every day and pop-up markets, art walks, music festivals, and comedy nights running all year, Waterloo is the place to pursue your passion projects.

Passion for knowledge

Top schools like the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, and Conestoga College plus world-renowned think tanks like the Perimeter Institute make Waterloo a major education and research city.

Farm to table

Seasonal eateries, organic kitchens, and old-school diners give Waterloo its unique flavor. Check out local favorites like Settlement Co, The Berlin, The Bauer Kitchen, Pure Juice Bar, and Abe Erb.

St. Jacobs farmers’ market

Explore the region’s rich Mennonite culture at this weekly market. Buy produce from the farmers who grew it then take a horse-drawn buggy to the quaint riverside village of St. Jacobs.

Craft breweries

As the birthplace of craft beer, no wonder Ontario’s highest concentration of craft breweries are here. Opened in 1984, Brick Brewery remains one of the best around. Raise your glass to the Waterloo Pilsner.
