We acknowledge that Knox Waterloo is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Neutral peoples. The sacred land on which Knox Waterloo is situated has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. The Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and Neutral people sought to walk gently on this land. They offered assistance to the first European travellers sharing their knowledge for survival in what was often a harsh climate. On October 25, 1784, after the American Revolutionary War of Independence, the Halidmand Tract – six miles on either side of the Grand River, all the way along its length – was given to the Six Nations of the Grand River by the British, as compensation for their role in the war and for the loss of traditional lands in Upstate New York. Of the 95,000 acres given to the Haudenosaunee, only 4,600 acres (less than 5 %) remains Six Nations land. It is important to recognize that Knox Waterloo is located on the Haldimand Tract.
From Highway 401, take the HWY-8 West exit (Exit 278) toward Kitchener/Waterloo. Take the HWY-7 East exit toward Guelph/Hwy-85/Waterloo. Take Conestoga Parkway/Hwy-85 North toward Waterloo. Take the Bridgeport Road West exit toward Waterloo Town Centre (Uptown Waterloo). Follow one way along Bridgeport Road through downtown Waterloo (cross over King Street) approximately 4 km. Keep to the leftmost lane after crossing King Street and proceed around a bend in the road (Bridgeport becomes Caroline Street North at this point). Just around the bend, turn left onto Dupont Street West. The church is on the right. There is ample parking and you can find overflow parking across the street at the Library or at Waterloo Town Square.
