Clair Hills

Clair Hills Homes For Sale

On the west end of Waterloo is a subdivision of newer homes called Clair Hills. As you venture deeper into Clair Hills you’ll start to find larger homes. These homes enjoy a gorgeous backdrop, which happens to be one of Waterloo’s best kept secrets: the Clair Forest. With over five kilometers of walking trails amid dense woods of 30-foot tall trees, Clair Forest is both beautiful and peaceful. You can often walk those trails without encountering another human being.

With the development of the huge shopping center and Cineplex, the Boardwalk, the west end has become a lot more appealing to people seeking housing in Waterloo.

There are several schools in Waterloo, Canada. Children in Clair Hills attend either St. Nicholas Catholic School (JK-8) or Edna Staebler Elementary School (JK-6).

Clair Hills teens are bussed to either Sir John A MacDonald Secondary School or Resurrection Catholic Secondary School.

Location

Clair Hills is located on the west side of Waterloo with easy access to Kitchener via Erbsville Road (which becomes Ira Needles Boulevard.)

A convenient location for living and working in Kitchener-Waterloo, however, commuting farther can be challenging as there is no expressway access on the West side (see more about transit below).

Clair Hills is home to an active community association that puts on annual family-friendly events like a community yard sale, Fall Fun Fest, and the Winter Classic. They also started a Community Garden in 2019 for those with a green thumb.

The neighbourhood is quickly gaining popularity with seniors because of the Clair Hills Retirement Community, a Chartwell residence. They offer different housing options from assisted living to senior apartments and have many amenities on-site, including a theatre, pool, greenhouse, library, salon, and wellness centre. The property is situated at the corner of Erbsville Road and Columbia Street, with a beautiful view overlooking the neighbourhood.

Residents also have the option to drive, bus, bike, or walk down Erbsville Road for a day of shopping or a night at the movies at The Boardwalk. There are also several health professionals and restaurants in the complex, too.

Schooling / Child Care
  • St. Nicholas Catholic School
  • Holy Rosary Catholic School  
  • Edna Staebler Elementary School

Depending on which school board your children enroll in, there are a few options for both Catholic and Public Schools. Typically from JK-Grade 8, students will attend either St. Nicholas Catholic School (Catholic) just north of Clair Hills in Laurelwood, or Edna Staebler Elementary School (Public).

Holy Rosary Catholic School is another Catholic option, however, if you prefer French Immersion you will be looking at enrolling your children Edna Staebler Elementary School.

High School students have bus transportation to either Sir John A. Macdonald or Resurrection Catholic Secondary School just 10-15 minutes away. Again, this is based on which school board your children are enrolled in.
