Why choose North Dumfries?

The Township of North Dumfries is an ideal place for businesses to locate for many reasons that are pertinent to every market sector.

Situated within a day's drive of many urban centers in Canada and the United States, and also within the Region of Waterloo, which also contains the cities of Waterloo, Kitchener and Cambridge, the Township is highly accessible and technologically advanced, able to handle most business applications.

Within an arms reach of three of Canada's top post-secondary education institutes, University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and University of Guelph, as well as Conestoga College, one of the top-rated colleges in Ontario, there is a large qualified, highly skilled work force at your business's disposal. Co-operative education programs at these universities provide student workers year-round with a financial and structural incentive to businesses who hire through the co-op program.

Accessibility and transportation are two of the most obvious reasons to choose North Dumfries Township. The Region of Waterloo International Airport and three other international airports within an hour's drive (Pearson International in Toronto, Hamilton International, and London International) provide air support for freight and passenger purposes. As well, the township has Highway 401 running right through it, part of Canada's superhighway infrastructure. Other supporting highways, such as highway 7/8 and highway 24, increase accessibility to more remote areas in the region.
