Living in Waterloo

Waterloo is the northernmost city in the Tri-Cities and in contrast to Kitchener and Cambridge is the high-tech and academic centre of the region. Waterloo is home to two universities: the University of Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier University, located about 1 km apart in the northwest end of the city. University of Waterloo is the larger of the two institutions and has a large high-tech business zone on the north side of the campus which contains some of Ontario's most advanced business enterprises; Laurier focuses more on the social sciences and business administration. The city has a population of nearly 100,000 people and saw growth of 12.6% from 2001 to 2006, one of the highest population growth rates in Ontario. Waterloo is becoming a technological, business, and social hot spot.

Despite the large footprint of the universities, Waterloo is still a family-oriented city, with over 75% of households families with children. Median household incomes are some of the highest in Ontario, allowing rents of $1,600 to be affordable. Major non-university employers include Sun Life Insurance, Manulife Financial, RIM, and several high-tech companies taking advantage of the universities. Waterloo contains a large number of elementary schools and four high schools, but oddly no hospitals are located in the city's boundaries (both regional hospitals are in Kitchener). Public transit is provided regionally, connecting with Kitchener and Cambridge. Waterloo is located north of Kitchener and the two cities are administratively separate for in all other respects one large city. Waterloo is located on Highway 8 which connects to Highway 401 and the rest of Ontario. Guelph is about 20 km east and Stratford 30 km west.
