A brilliant community

Known as the tech capital of Canada, Waterloo Region is home to Christie Digital, OpenText, Vidyard, Thalmic Labs, and many more incredible companies. The growing tech community has also attracted Google and Shopify Plus to set up shop among the “Northern Silicon Valley”. Waterloo Region is also proud of the wide range of business sectors in the city, including insurance, education, and advanced manufacturing (to name just a few). It’s this industrial diversity that keeps the community well-employed and boasting a strong economy.
