About

Family and pet-friendly home in a beautiful old neighbourhood near downtown Kitchener. Great connections to public transit (800m away from light rail station) and 20-min bike ride to the University of Waterloo campus. Very family-friendly area with great schools, parks and amenities. We are a short walk from the Kitchener Market, public library, coffee shops, and the local symphony. The house has a fairly big back yard and patio furniture. The neighbourhood is a nice mix of young and old. It's welcoming, safe and inclusive. We are looking for an exchange in Canada, because my wife's employer will not allow her to leave the country for prolonged periods of time. That said, we are open to a few months in Europe, as well. We don't need a full house. A spacious apartment would work.
