Living in Kitchener
Kitchener is the largest city in the Tri-Cities, not only for its population size but also for what it has to offer residents. With a downtown core you’d expect in much larger cities and being home to many big-name brands like Google, D2L and Toyota, these cities are quickly making themselves a sought-after destination for businesses and working professionals. And with its proximity to Waterloo, it’s a quick trip to multiple universities and college campuses to find some of the next brightest minds. But that’s not all that’s connected about this city, it also offers one of the best public transit systems in the area, with a brand-new light-rail transit network to complement the existing bus network.
This big-league city also delivers big-time when it comes to fun— home to a nightlife scene of restaurants, bars and dance clubs only rivalled by much bigger cities. And with many venues that play host to concerts and major sporting events, it’s easy to take in dinner and a show.
Throughout the year, Kitchener also hosts many special events, including the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside of Germany. To see exactly what this beautiful city has to offer the entire family, check out the Kitchener events calendar here.
