Mailing and street address

In addition to The Morning Edition and In The Key of C, our radio studios are often used for guests to connect with regional and national programs such as Ontario Today, IdeasQuirks and Quarks (etc).

CBC Kitchener-Waterloo is located at 117 King St. W., in downtown Kitchener, Ont. There are a few no-charge street parking spots on both sides of the street in front of our offices. There are several outdoor public paid-parking lots nearby, and an underground garage one block away at Kitchener City Hall.

The Greyhound bus station is pretty much right outside our back door, on Charles Street. The Charles Street/Victoria Park eastbound LRT stop is also there. 

Various King Street GRT transit buses stop very close to the station, eastbound at city hall and westbound across the street.

Our office is staffed from 5:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. weekdays. 

Our front door is ability-accessible, at grade with a small upward slope into the vestibule. The front (street side) door is kept locked because we do not have a formal receptionist or reception area. But the street-front is all glass, so if you knock on the door during office hours, we will see you and come to greet you.

Our phone number is: 519-581-1384.
