One of Canada’s best cities to live and work

Grebel is proud to call Waterloo Region home. Situated approximately 100 kilometres west of Toronto and easily accessed via Highway 401, the Region blends big-city amenities with a small-town sense of community. Roughly 600,000 residents are spread across the thriving urban centres of Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge, as well as rural townships where horse-drawn Mennonite buggies are still a common sight.
