Help us create an online hub for all things neighbourhoods!

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

When we worked with the community to develop our neighbourhood strategy, over 1,700 residents shared their thoughts about the great things neighbours can do to make Waterloo a more vibrant, caring, and engaged place where everyone belongs. An online hub for all things neighbourhoods - the development of a neighbourhood-specific website - will help neighbours access supports, tools, and information for neighbours to do great things.

Based on the feedback we received during the development of the neighbourhood strategy, our new neighbourhood website will include:

  • Ideas to encourage neighbourliness
  • Information on volunteering in your neighbourhood
  • Available neighbourhood funding
  • Online space for neighbourhood groups to connect
  • Information about neighbourhood-based programs such as outdoor rinks, block connectors, neighbourhood and homes associations, and community gardens
  • Easy to use toolkits for common neighbourhood projects or ideas
  • Information about access to special event equipment for neighbourhood activities
  • A mapping tool to explore indoor and outdoor spaces in Waterloo


Stay tuned!

Thank you for your feedback!

  • Neighbourhood identity plans to help those without a neighbourhood association identify and name their area to help build community connections.
  • Neighbourhood equipment program and available details.
  • Neighbourhood-focused funding and grant information.
  • Toolkits to assist neighbours with neighbourhood interactions such as how to support an inclusive neighbourhood, how to organize a neighbourhood event, and how to welcome new neighbours.
  • Tips and inspiration from other communities.

  3. Host online engagement with a website content draft
  4. Launch the website
  5. Add additional functions based on neighbourhood strategy action items
  6. Update content and resources to reflect community supports over time
