5 Reasons to Love Life in the Waterloo Region
Thinking about making the move to Cambridge? Here is a list of five wonderful reasons to love life in this vibrant, picturesque city as well as the other cities and towns that make up Ontario’s Waterloo Region.
Farm to Table Opportunities
The 2016 census by Statistics Canada indicates that there are 1,374 established farms throughout the Waterloo Region. This provides exceptional opportunities for farm-to-table dining. One needs only to take a drive through Woolwich (in the Waterloo Region) to see numerous farms offering everything from organic honey to eggs, homemade summer sausages, maple syrup, produce and everything in between. In fact, the St Jacobs Farmers’ market in Woolwich is the largest farmers market in Canada.
Thriving Tech Industry
The Waterloo region is home to an impressive crop of globally competitive tech companies. According to a recent CBC report, growth in the region’s tech sector is likely to result in a considerable uptick in new hires, as the top 25 companies in the region, from promising startups to globally competitive tech leaders, continue to grow.
Exceptional Post-Secondary Options
Home buyers looking to expand their professional skills portfolio, or with children preparing to enter the post-secondary phase of their education, will have an excellent selection of campuses located close to home. The Waterloo region is home to several notable schools, including the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University, David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, Conestoga College, and Waterloo Bible College.
An Outdoor Adventurer’s Paradise
If you have a love of the great outdoors, and are considering making Myers Manors home, you will not be disappointed by all that the Waterloo Region has to offer. From skiing and snow boarding at Chicopee to white water kayaking down the rushing Grand River in the nearby Elora Gorge conservation area, and endless opportunities for scenic cycling tours, there is never a shortage of adventures to be had here.
