One of Canada’s best cities

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.
