Locations

Few Canadian cities have evolved as successfully as Kitchener, transforming from an industrial behemoth into a bustling tech hub. The result is a stunning array of urban locations surrounded by nature and agricultural landscapes. Kitchener has it all - a big city look with a small town feel, all while being only an hour outside of Toronto and minutes from rural Mennonite country. Visit Ontario Creates for highlights or contact Bob Egan for concierge location service.
