The Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter of the Ubuntu Canada Team is dedicated to promoting Ubuntu in South Western Ontario.

How to Join

The easiest way is to come out to one of our Ubuntu Canada events in KW.

You can sign up on Launchpad: Join the mailing list there.

We're user @UbuntuWaterloo on in the group Ubuntucakw and user @UbuntuWaterloo on Twitter too. Also, you may see us on IRC at irc://

We're heavily involved in the Kitchener-Waterloo Linux Users Group. Come out to a meeting (first Monday of the month) and ask around for Ubuntu KW.

Ubuntu Hours

There are two Ubuntu Hours in Kitchener-Waterloo. No registration required, but you can if you want to on the Canadian Team Events page.

Ubuntu Hour Kitchener

On the first Friday of the month Charles McColm hosts an Ubuntu Hour at Williams Fresh Cafe (340 Fairway Road). He'll have the usual complement of Ubuntu (32)/Kubuntu (32)/Ubuntu 64-bit server CDs.

Ubuntu Hour Waterloo

Waterloo celebrates Ubuntu Happy Hour! Or is it Happy Ubuntu Hour? We're currently meeting with the Kitchener folks, trying hard to steer Ubuntu Hours towards the Egg Roll King.
