From the official City of Cambridge site

Located in the heart of Southern Ontario, Canada - 88 kilometers (55 miles) west of Toronto, Ontario; and 291 kilometers (181 miles) east-northeast of Detroit, MI, USA; Cambridge is part of the Golden Triangle, a series of cities including Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. This area, including The City of Guelph (aka the "Royal City") is also known as the Technology Triangle because of the concentration of high-tech industries.

The Corporation of the City of Cambridge, in its present form, includes Galt (originally Shade's Mills) covering the largest portion of the Cambridge. It takes up the southern half of the city and includes Galt East, Galt West and Galt North. At the southern-most tip of the City of Cambridge lies the little community of Littles Corners.

On the western side of Cambridge lies Preston (previously two communities known as Cambridge Mills and the Village of Preston - respectively). Just West of Preston is the small Cambridge village of Blair (originally called "Shinglebridge").

Separated from its partner communities by a large block of industrial park lays Cambridge's community known as Hespeler. Hespeler, straddling the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway (Highway #401) is the most north-easterly section of Cambridge.

North of Highway 401 (adjacent to Hespeler) is Fisher Mills. Adjacent to Fisher Mills are the most westerly - regions of Cambridge, Freeport being the northern edge and Hegey which is located between Freeport and Highway 401.
