In the Municipality of Waterloo, Ontario, the city of Kitchener is home for over 230,000 residents. It is surprisingly close to one of Canada’s behemoths, the city of Toronto.

Even though they have completely different municipal governments, the city of Kitchener and Waterloo are often referred to as one singular entity, “Kitchener-Waterloo” or K-W. Both of them along with the city of Cambridge are known as “The Tri-Cities”. This is simply because all three of them are located in the Municipality of Waterloo, previously known as Waterloo County.

More precisely, Kitchener is located in Southwestern Ontario, right in the Saint Lawrence Lowlands. These lowlands feature wet soils and deciduous forests, all while being located at a slightly higher elevation than sea level, around 300 m. Kitchener is the largest city sitting on the bank of the Grand River, and contains many glacial features. The city takes most of its drinking water from the Waterloo Moraine and has Baden Hill close to the west of it. Baden Hill has 4 glacier-made kames which have the shape of an irregular mound of sand.

The origins of Kitchener date back to 1784, when the Six Nations received 240,000 hectares of land as a gift from the British.  Later, 38,000 hectares of this land were sold to a colonel named Richard Beasley. Those 38,000 hectares seemed very appealing to several German Mennonite farming families coming from Pennsylvania because they saw the land as an opportunity to practice their faith in peace. As such, the Germans bought all the unsold land that Beasley had, creating about 160 farms. These German migrants arriving from Pennsylvania were known as the Pennsylvania Dutch, and as such, they formed a town that was given the name “Town of Berlin”, followed by the “City of Berlin”, until finally the name Kitchener was accepted in May 1916. This name was adopted due to some anti-German sentiment that was about due to the First World War. There were many Germans who arrived from Germany and wanted to immigrate here, in the “Town of Berlin” which already had many second generation Germans living in it. In 1911, the Town of Berlin had 15,196 citizens, and around 70% of them identified as German, but only 8.3% were actually born in Germany.

The economy was dominated by the German handicrafts sector in the early days of Kitchener, but most of these activities ceased operations. In the manufacturing area, Dare Foods still is an important employer, but the biggest employer is Manulife Financial. In Waterloo, you can find BlackBerry, Sun Life, and the Open Text Corporation, one of the biggest companies in Canada in the software development industry. For the most part, Kitchener transitioned from the old German manufacturing to a modern service-oriented town.

Kitchener has a humid continental climate. This means that winter days are generally cold to very cold, accompanied by long snowfalls, while summer days are warm and humid. The temperatures go as high as 30° C (86° F) in the summer and -20° C (-4° F) in the winter. The average amount of days without any frost is 147, quite low due to the city's higher elevation and the fact that it is more inland.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Kitchener’s downtown core. Good options include Stanley Park, Victoria Hills, and Cedar Hills. Even cities that require a bit of a longer commute, such as Huron Park, Lower Doon, and Hidden Valley are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.
