Make it Kitchener Survey

Consultation has concluded.

On October 26, 2020 Kitchener Council approved Make It Kitchener 2.0, the City’s new economic development strategy. Make It Kitchener 2.0 will build on the successes of previous strategies while also addressing new issues and economic recovery pressures due to COVID-19. It presents a 10-year vision to guide economic development and community initiatives and presents an innovative funding model through a new Economic Development Investment Fund (EDIF) that would enable Council to invest up to an additional $110 million over 10 years, without relying on a tax rate increase. Visionary masterplans will be developed through community consultation to establish a vision and objectives for key lands owned by the City. By maximizing sales value and partnership opportunities for those lands, the City will create funding and assets that can be reinvested to advance the Make It Kitchener 2.0 initiatives and future opportunities. To learn more about Make It Kitchener 2.0, visit
