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.
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.
Charles McColm hosted Ubuntu Global Jam Kitchener on 14 September 2014 at Computer Recycling. Somebody took pictures!
UbuntuGlobalJam was held at Kwartzlab, Saturday, 8 September 2012 from 4:00pm to 10:00pm.
Naturally, we hold release parties.
