The City of Waterloo is an energetic, diverse and very high tech city and it even has the awards to prove it. Waterloo is consistently named as one of Canada’s smartest cities as well as one of its most livable.
Home to the likes of Blackberry and two of the most respected universities in Canada – the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University – as well as the likes of the Institute for Quantum Computing and the Centre for International Governance Innovation Waterloo is a magnet for the world’s thinkers and innovators.
But it’s not all about the tech. The city boasts a rich history that is celebrated through museums, local events and more, and a selection of restaurants, stores and cultural institutions that is as diverse as it is comprehensive.
