Cities

Kitchener, Ontario

Kitchener, Ontario, is the regional seat within the Regional Municipality of Waterloo, Ontario. German Mennonite families from Pennsylvania settled the city on land that belonged to the Six Nations. It became the village of Berlin in 1830, and in 1873, our company founder, J.M. Staebler, established his insurance business in his home office on Queen Street.

During World War I, the town of Berlin came under pressure to change its name and show affiliation with the Commonwealth. It chose the name Kitchener, inspired by Lord Kitchener. Now, Kitchener is a thriving, modern city with civic events and arts festivals. Public transportation, colleges, and universities, as well as numerous parks and recreational facilities, all make Kitchener an attractive community for visitors and residents.

While Kitchener doesn't hide its industrial roots, the city is recognized for its high-value business development in finance, insurance, digital media, and health science. Recent new developments, like the Ion rapid transit light rail and rapidly expanding tech companies, make Kitchener a promising prospect for potential residents.

Woodstock, Ontario

Woodstock, Ontario, or "The Friendly City" as it likes to be known, is the county seat of Oxford County on the Thames river.

It has produced record-breaking amounts of dairy products like cheese and butter, and cows are so well-loved here that they even have a statue at the edge of town.

Woodstock's economy centers on manufacturing and tourism, and Woodstock has an enormous market for the agricultural industry in the surrounding area.

Paris, Ontario

Paris, Ontario, was founded in 1850, where the Nith and Grand Rivers meet. It was named the "Prettiest Little Town in Canada" by Harrowsmith Magazine in 2017. The town's namesake comes from the local gypsum deposits used for making plaster of Paris – not the French capital.

Paris was settled in 1829 by founder Hiram Capron of Vermont, who built a grist mill and an iron foundry in the town, and was involved in local gypsum mining. Paris is known today as the cobblestone capital of Canada, which began with the construction of St. James Church in 1839.

Paris was a mill and mining town for much of its early history. Today, Paris is a residential community for people working in Toronto, Hamilton, and Woodstock. The Labour Day weekend Fall Fair is a popular end-of-summer area event, and the town is a welcome destination for families.
