Renter's guide to Kitchener, ON

Located in southern Canada, Kitchener is a large city in the province of Ontario. Together with the nearby cities of Waterloo to the north and Cambridge to the south, it forms the Regional Municipality of Waterloo.

As part of the Regional Municipality of Waterloo, Kitchener and its neighbouring cities were named the fastest-growing tech talent markets in Canada in CBRE’s 2017 Scoring Canadian Tech Talent. The city is part of the region’s booming startup and tech scene and is home to numerous tech companies.

Kitchener is the fourth-largest Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) in Ontario, and the tenth-largest CMA in Canada. The city has less than 10 percent of the population of Toronto, ON and there are about twice as many people here as there are in nearby Cambridge. Kitchener is located 66.5 miles from Toronto and can be found 336 miles from Ottawa.

Much like other cities in the region, Kitchener’s climate is humid continental, with warm, humid summers and cold winters each year. In the summer, the weather in Kitchener includes temperatures that average about 79ºF, though some days can get above 86ºF. Winter temperatures in the city are around 20ºF, with temperature extremes as low as -29ºF. Kitchener sees an average of about 36.5 inches of rain each year, mostly in the spring, summer, and autumn months. There is quite a bit of snow and ice in the winter months, with about 63 inches per year. Flooding is sometimes a concern for the city, particularly in the spring.

Tips for renting in Kitchener, ON

Maintenance of the buildings and units is the responsibility of the landlord, but tenants must ensure that they keep their unit clean and damage-free.

Renters in Kitchener can access supports from Waterloo Region Community Legal Services, the Landlord and Tenant Board, or The Working Centre Access to Housing.
