Our Vision, Mission and Values

The Region of Waterloo’s vision, mission and values statements capture the heart of who we are, the vision we have for the communities we serve, and the ways we intentionally choose to work to achieve this vision.
  • Our Vision (what we aspire to): A compassionate community that cares for all people, stewards the land for future generations and where everyone has the opportunity to live a good life.
  • Our Mission (what we do): Providing essential services that support quality of life for each and every person in Waterloo Region.
  • Our Core Value (how we work): Care for people and the land we share.

These statements inspire and motivate the Region of Waterloo’s work as we serve this community. Our organization’s work is also guided by our 2023-2027 Strategic Plan, called “Growing with Care.”

Waterloo Region is a part of the Dish with One Spoon wampum and this commitment is the foundation for our vision, mission, and core values. This agreement means:

  • we recognize our shared humanity and land
  • we only take what we need
  • we leave some for others
  • and we keep the dish clean
