Education and knowledge


Post-secondary education is nothing new for Kitchener, as our city is home to:

Combined, these highly revered educational institutions - as well as the Waterloo Catholic District School Board offices, St. Louis Adult Learning CentreTriOS College, and Medix College  - make up our education and knowledge creation cluster; and represent an important piece of the revitalization of our downtown.

In addition, each one of these initiatives is successfully serving to:

  • Create a teaching and research infrastructure.
  • Attract young, ambitious minds.
  • Create a new identity of higher learning.
  • Foster invention and innovation.

In a few short years, these initiatives will bring more than 1,500 students, faculty and staff to our downtown core - as well as $200 million to our economy - demonstrating that our city is a desirable location for private investment in education.
