Anyone moving to Kitchener should know it is actually made up of several cities: Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. Each of these cities hold a distinct personality and reputation, and view each other with mild contempt. However, it is common for people from all three cities make fun of Cambridge.

When moving to Kitchener, one should consider rush hour times during the commute, usually occurring between 9-5, Monday through Friday. Someone would also want to consider the rise in living costs, as the GTA expands, a vast majority of Toronto’s population have moved here. Thus, with population expansion, we see an economy boost in Kitchener, as the grand majority from Toronto are wealthy, and living costs are adjusted to accommodate the people of the majority.
