This is how we do.

Waterloo Region is about building cool things together. That’s what we do here. For us, working, playing, helping, giving, celebrating, are all part of the ethos. Maybe we need a word for it, but it’s all at the True North Festival.

For True North attendees, it’s like having a savvy local guide to show you all the hidden gems in a new town. For Waterloo Region’s locals, it’s a way to rediscover the community you thought you knew, and show our international guests what makes this place so extraordinary: You!

With our top-notch universities, research institutes and collaborative culture, our startup scene is one of the fastest-growing tech ecosystems in the world. But it’s people that make Waterloo Region our world-class home.
