Township of Woolwich

The Township of Woolwich is a collective of three main settlements; Elmira, St. Jacobs, and Breslau located just north-east of the City of Waterloo. This expanding township is known for the rich heritage of Mennonite living and great open spaces.

  • St. Jacob’s Farmers Market
  • Region of Waterloo International Airport
  • Breslau Community Center
  • Woolwich Memorial Center
  • Maple Syrup Museum
  • Artists of Woolwich Gallery

With such a spread of open land and long, winding highways, you’ll be happy to hear how booming this township actually is. You’ll be immersed in the constant hum of outdoor events, library traffic, sports groups, dog parks, and involvement with arts, culture and heritage.

St. Jacobs is home to one of the seven Drayton Entertainment Theatres. Their Playhouse thereat is just down the street from the lively farmers market. Since 1965, Elmira has been known for hosting an incredibly popular Maple Syrup Festival, welcoming over 65,000 visitors each year.

With Woolwich’s substantial population of Old Order Mennonite families, it remains the norm to see horse-drawn buggies, especially through St. Jacobs. A short drive to the tri-cities (Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo), Woolwich Township has become a favourite place to lay down roots for young families. Settling in here provides the safety of a small town with the convenience of urban amenities. Homes in Woolwich Township vary from heritage properties, larger lots for estates and newer subdivisions.

Schooling / Child Care

The Waterloo Region District School Board and Waterloo Catholic District School Board operate eight public elementary schools and one public secondary school in the Township of Wilmot.

Waterloo Region is home to the University of Waterloo, recognized for its engineering programs and remains only a twenty-minute drive from central Woolwich.

Not far from the universities, you have Conestoga College, one of Canada’s fastest growing Institute best known for its polytechnic education.

For families with young ones, there are many child care and family oriented learning options to choose from, including multiple licensed child care centres supported through the Region of Waterloo as well as an EarlyON Child and Family Centre in the heart of Elmira.


The GRT is Waterloo Region’s public transport operator. It operates daily bus services for the region. Woolwich focuses this system primarily on Route 21, making the downtown highlights of both St Jacobs and Elmira easily accessible for everyone. The GRT website has information on schedules, fares and other important details for riders.

There are many trails and paths along the various ponds and the expansive Grand River in and around the township.
