City of Waterloo

Waterloo is commonly known as "Hartford North", due to the presence of a large number of insurers in the city. Manulife Financial, Sun Life, The Equitable Life Insurance Company of Canada, and FaithLife Financial all have Waterloo as their Head Office site.

In addition to the thriving business sector, Waterloo also hosts two world class universities; the University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University. The presence of the universities, combined with both a thriving business sector and a small population, gives Waterloo all of the cultural and civic atmosphere of a large city such as Toronto, without all of the traffic. A short drive of minutes can take you from the downtown parks and shopping to a variety of small town markets.
