True North Festival has something for everyone.
True North takes place in Canada’s innovation capital, Waterloo Region.
The birthplace of search, smartphones and the blue bin, it’s where quantum computing, AI, fintech, blockchain and robots are part of the daily vernacular. It’s one of the world’s hottest places to start and grow a tech business. And it’s one of the most dynamic, energetic innovation ecosystems in the world.
True North events are happening all over the Region—in unique buildings, transformed industrial spaces and on vibrant streets.
You’ll cruise along on the ION - the Region’s new light rail transit system.
