Our smart city


Most City of Kitchener facilities and all libraries are closed for public use

The Province of Ontario has issued a stay-at-home order requiring everyone to remain at home with exceptions for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or for essential work.

Visit our COVID-19 updates page to learn what's open and closed as well as how city services are affected. 

Kitchener has always had a reputation for being a community with foresight. A place where the dreamers and doers come together, share ideas and make great things happen. Innovation is not what we do - it's who we are. We constantly strive to introduce new ways of thinking and doing to improve the lives of citizens.
