Another Good Reason to Move to Waterloo Region. Grade A for Family Friendliness

Another Good Reason to Move to Waterloo Region. Grade A for Family Friendliness By Warren McNeil,

If there weren’t already enough reasons to relocate to the Waterloo Region, more reasons keep popping up! Waterloo region and Guelph received an “A” for family friendliness.

There were five factors that the family friendliness grade was based on: community feel, education choice, cost of living, economic strength and family independence.

“The region received “A”s for charitable giving, a low homicide rate, low commute times, high family income and population growth; also low government transfers and a high level of family independence.”

All was not perfect though. The region needs to improve in areas of greenspace, the number of long-term residents and high monthly mortgage payments.

The region also scored an “A” in average family income.

I always knew that Waterloo Region was a grade A community. Now its official!!! 🙂 Now all we have to do is shoot for straight “A’s” and “A+’s..
