There is so much more to your home then bricks, mortar, walls and paint. The community is the foundation of your home. Having a high quality home, along with a top notch community makes for a perfect picture.
Together, Kitchener, Cambridge, Waterloo and surrounding area make up the Region of Waterloo. Valleyrauss went out into the community to ask community members why Waterloo Region is the best place to live. Here is what they said:
Kid friendly events, activities, walking trails and great “unknown” coffee shops!
St Jacob’s Farmers Market for sure.
Volunteers, willingness to give back to the community.
MoneySense ranks towns and cities by size from small to large. Waterloo Region is ranked in the category of medium. It is the place where you can get a lot of amenities that the bigger metropolitan areas boast, like cultural events and nightlife, without so many of the big city challenges like traffic and pollution. You get the quiet, country feeling without being so isolated and removed from the conveniences of the city.
The cities of Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and surrounding areas are not huge, but combining them into Waterloo Region makes us the tenth largest metropolitan areas in Canada. National and international companies look to locate here.
The Region is full of walking, and biking trails, great shopping, entertainment, culture, the arts, and education. Waterloo Region is also quickly growing, urbanizing with new condo projects and the LRT. We have a low crime rate and are connected to Toronto by the GoTrain and 45 minutes on the 401 (not during the morning rush).
