About Us

Opportunities Waterloo Region, a member of Vibrant Communities Canada, can be a little hard to understand because of how outcomes are achieved.

We don’t provide direct service and we don’t own programs. Rather, we play a unique role in our regional community by working at a systems level – on root causes.

We act as a regional convener, engaging multi-sectors of the community (business, government, non-profits, and people) and facilitating the efforts necessary to develop and implement comprehensive, community-owned solutions with the goal to provide people with opportunities to prosper and reach their fullest potential. Building on existing assets. Increasing community strengths.
