The City of Kitchener

The City of Kitchener achieves the near impossible – it provides its over 240,000 residents with all of the excitement and convenience of big city living and yet still manages to remain the small town charm in which its history is rooted.

It is a city of innovation – Google is among just one of the many cutting edge companies that call the city home – of diversity and most certainly of culture and celebration.

The city’s annual salute to its Germanic roots – the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest – is the largest such festival staged outside Germany and has become known worldwide. The music scene is diverse and vibrant, with Kitchener playing annual host to not just one but three of Ontario’s biggest music festivals and the selection of museums, art galleries and historic attractions to explore offers something for everyone. Combine this with acres of greenery and a truly ethnically diverse population and you have a city that is truly unique.
