Waterloo, ON—September 20, 2023– R.V. Anderson Associates Limited (RVA), a leader in the provision of engineering and architectural consulting services, announced today that it has opened a new office in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario, in the heart of Downtown Kitchener and Canada’s Technology Triangle.

Often referred to as the “Silicon Valley of the North,” the Region of Waterloo has earned a reputation for producing some of the world’s most talented computer science and engineering professionals, and boasts one of the fastest-growing millennial and new grad populations in North America. With the establishment of its new Waterloo office, RVA is strategically positioning itself at the heart of a Region that encapsulates all the future potential of our industry.

“As one of Canada’s top engineering, innovation, and research hubs, Waterloo is an ideal new home for RVA,” said Nick Palomba, Vice President of Transportation. “And as a University of Waterloo alumni, I’m excited to witness our growth at the center of this innovation-driven community, surrounded by top-tier institutions and world-class talent – an ecosystem we’re humbled to be a part of for many years to come. We look forward to how much more we can achieve for our clients by offering dedicated local support and by deepening our commitment to advancing engineering excellence in our industry.”

The new Waterloo office places RVA at both ends of the Toronto-Waterloo Corridor, a global centre of talent, growth, innovation, and discovery. The Corridor is the second largest technology cluster in North America and is home to over 7 million residents, 15,000 tech companies, industry giants such as Google, IBM, SAP, and Oracle, 400,000+ post-secondary students, and 16 universities and colleges – including Canada’s largest engineering school, the University of Waterloo.

This latest development is a further important step in the rapid expansion of RVA, giving its clients access to the full spectrum of services across the firm’s national network, and allowing it to tap into a diverse pool of emerging talent. By strengthening its presence in Canada’s top engineering hub, RVA is poised to play a pivotal role in the growth and prosperity of the Kitchener-Waterloo community, as well as the opportunities it holds for innovation in Canada and beyond.
