The Place

Stratford is a world leader in digital infrastructure with smart technologies that support and nurture local businesses. 

Our citywide high-speed fibre optic network is a progressive investment that provides fibre to our homes and businesses and wireless connectivity to every mobile device, rivaling any major metropolitan area. 

Stratford's location provides unparalleled advantages. Sitting adjacent to southern Ontario's main business corridor Highway 401, our city is a gateway to Toronto and the US borders and our mainline passenger and freight rail service runs direct to hubs like Buffalo, Detroit and Chicago. Stratford is well connected with 5 airports within a 1.5-hour drive, three of which are international airports. You can get there from here. 

Stratford is also leading the way in advanced manufacturing and innovation. Companies with global reach are investing here because we've built the foundations for success. Being located in Canada's leading manufacturing area provides a huge sector advantage and our skilled workforce spans the disciplines from advanced robotics, aerospace, auto parts manufacturing and agri-business to banking, digit-tech, art and music. Globally recognized companies have made Stratford home and they keep our economy growing with jobs and opportunities. 

With over 250 acres of zoned serviced employment lands, a world class self-healing electrical grid and carrier grade IT infrastructure, Stratford is ready to go when you are. 

In addition, Stratford enjoys the largest park area per capita of any city in Canada with over 1000 acres of groomed parkland steps from our front doors. Stratford's prosperous history has left an inheritance of beautiful tree lined streets and landscaping and our community takes great pride in maintaining it. 

Stratford is truly a place where anything is possible. Globally connected. Community driven.
