| Print Link

The Waterloo Region Economic Development Strategy (the Strategy) is a roadmap for the Region of Waterloo, Cities of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo and Townships of North Dumfries, Wellesley, Wilmot and Woolwich and a broad range of community stakeholders to co-operatively support the ongoing economic prosperity of Waterloo Region. The Strategy's vision to be locally rooted, internationally competitive and globally renowned is to be realized through the achievement of its four strategic goals:

  1. To be the premier location for innovation and entrepreneurship
  2. To be the most competitive location for new and expanding companies and institutions
  3. To be a resilient, engaged and dynamic economic ecosystem
  4. To be a community of choice for talented people

To achieve these goals, the Strategy identifies 22 strategic objectives and 43 specific actions for the new Waterloo EDC, the Area Municipal economic development offices, and the Region of Waterloo Office of Economic Development. The Strategy also brings together a wide range of key stakeholders and allied organizations including both Chambers of Commerce and the small business centres.
