The Grand River is the eastern boundary and the riding stretches to Wilmot Line in the west, between Benjamin Road and Country Squire Road in the north and the CN Rail line, Fischer Hallman Road and Highland Road West in the south.

The city of Waterloo makes up about three-quarters of the riding. Waterloo's economic activities include manufacturing, financial and insurance sectors as well as retail trade. It has a strong technology sector and is home to University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and a campus of Conestoga College.

In 2004, a portion of the city of Kitchener in the southeast has moved into Kitchener Centre riding. The riding of Waterloo was created in 1966 from Waterloo South and North. In 1996, the name changed to Kitchener-Waterloo.

Waterloo South was Tory from 1900 to 1949, but since then the riding elected candidates from all three main parties. New Democrat Max Saltsman won a 1964 byelection and served four terms. Conservative Walter McLean won in 1979 and held the seat until 1993. He was minister responsible for the status of women and minister of state for immigration in the Mulroney administration.
