About the City
The city of Kitchener is an exciting community to live in, with plenty of opportunities to get involved and engaged, no matter what your tastes. Right next door to another major city, Waterloo, you'll have access to the best of what not one but two communities has to offer. The convenient transit system that connects the cities not only makes it easy for you to go back and forth between the two, but also offers you corner-to-corner coverage so you can explore to your heart's content.
Kitchener's downtown has something for everyone, no matter your tastes. Lively restaurants and cafés are a great respite after a day spent wandering the many unique shops or the Kitchener Market, which offers fresh produce, international foods and goods from local artisans and vendors.
Kitchener is a city that cares about and caters to its older population. The city's own website features a section with a comprehensive list of senior's programs, from recreation and leisure to personal counseling services. Kitchener also has a Senior Day program designed to help seniors with mobility issues access a variety of activities at seniors centres that they otherwise may not be able to access. The program also promotes social interaction, providing meals and a comfortable environment for conversation.
