Region of Waterloo Councillors


Dataset description


Regional Council is the policy-forming and decision-making body of the Region of Waterloo. The first council was elected in October of 1972 for a two year term. Councillors were elected at the local level and either appointed to Regional Council or were directly elected but served both the area and upper tier municipality. Provincial legislation passed in the spring of 2000, reduced the number of councillors from 24 to 16 and mandated the direct election of councillors. This data set lists all the members of Regional Council by term from 1972 to 2018.
