We have detailed information for 2 Neighbourhoods in Waterloo!
Kitchener-Waterloo, known as the twin cities, is located in the southwest part of the province of Ontario. Using the 401 highway as a reference point, it is situated approximately 100 kilometers west of Toronto and approximately 300 kilometers east of Windsor.
Being only a one to one and a half hour drive to Toronto means that many people are willing to commute and real estate is quite reasonable.
The twin cities are only a two hour drive from the US border of Buffalo and three to four hour drive from Detroit, Michigan. Accordingly, many industries can thrive in the area. Such companies such as Toyota Manufacturing, Sun Life Financial and Manu Life have made a home for themselves here in the Region. The area has transformed itself over the past two decades with many old and labour intensive industries being replaced with High Tech jobs.
Surrounding the cities is a great deal of workable, thriving farmland and many smaller towns and villages. This provides another strong economic basis for the area as shown by the presence of Maple Leaf Foods and the ongoing success and durability of the Kitchener and Waterloo and St. Jacobs Farmer's Markets.
Some extremely well known landmarks within Waterloo itself are the University of Waterloo, Wilfred Laurier University, part of Conestoga College's campus, and Research In Motion (RIM) which is the origin and manufacturer of the Blackberry. It is these prominent points of reference that had earned Waterloo its elected title of "Smartest City in the World" in 2007.
The high profile and strong presence of two world class universities forms a solid technological basis for research and development and related spin off businesses.
