Perched on the scenic intersection of the Speed and Grand Rivers, Cambridge is a naturally beautiful city filled with distinctive, European-inspired architecture and more than 58 kilometers of picturesque walking trails.
Measuring 112 square kilometers and part of Ontario’s Regional Municipality of Waterloo, Cambridge is known for its active arts scene, centuries-old neo-Gothic limestone structures and wealth of sustainability-minded businesses and practices. Incorporated in 1973, Cambridge comprises four districts—Galt, Hespeler, Preston and Blair. The neighbourhood of West Galt boasts historic Dickson Hill, which is filled with stunning Victorian homes, and Blair is a charming village-like region blossoming with quaint charm and sizable estates.
Cambridge is also a noted manufacturing hub for a range of industries, from packaged foods and automobiles to telecommunications technology. It is home to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada, Frito-Lay Canada and Babcock & Wilcox, Canada's largest manufacturer of fossil and nuclear steam generation systems.
Among the city's top attractions are the state-of-the-art Hamilton Family Theatre, the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory, The Cambridge Centre of the Arts and the Cambridge Farmers' Market (founded in 1830, it is the third-oldest market in Canada). The international film industry has also taken notice of Cambridge’s uniquely photogenic setting and European aesthetic—over the last few years the city has appeared in numerous films and television series.
Cambridge’s notable educational institutions include the 165-year-old Galt Collegiate Institute and Vocational School, the University of Waterloo School of Architecture and Conestoga College’s School of Engineering Technology.
