History meets innovation in the Kitchener area

Located along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor, the Waterloo region blends a strong German and Mennonite heritage with a diverse, forward-looking culture. The Radisson hotel lies in the heart of this area, which boasts a growing tech community with companies like Christie Digital, Google, BlackBerry, D2L, Sandvine and OpenText. On vacation or need a break from meetings? Try Kitchener's many outdoor activities, such as skiing and snowboarding in the winter and water rides, canoeing, tubing and zip-lining during the summer. You can also visit nearby landmarks like St. Jacobs Country, which features quaint streets lined with boutiques and local restaurants. The Stratford Festival and Drayton Entertainment lie a short drive away, and the area offers abundant opportunities to indulge in delicious culinary experiences and tour local craft breweries. A brand-new ION light rail system is expected to open in 2019.
