Count Your Business In!

From May to August, the Region of Waterloo, in collaboration with local municipalities and the WaterlooEDC, will be gathering important information through a Workplace Count. It’s simple: a Workplace Count team member will call or email each place of work, except for home-based businesses and farms at this time. Information about the number of employees and square footage of space will be collected through a simple questionnaire that will take about five minutes. The information provided by businesses and other workplaces will help us better plan for future business growth in Waterloo Region, and meet on-going needs for services and infrastructure.

COVID-19 Safe Ambassador Program

The COVID-19 Safe Ambassador program is a free service from the Greater Kitchener Waterloo and Cambridge Chambers of Commerce and the Region of Waterloo to help businesses operate safely.

In collaboration with NSF International, a global public health and safety organization, we are providing free education and one-on-one guidance to help small & medium sized businesses in Waterloo Region  to minimize COVID-19 risks.

When you participate in this program, an NSF-trained ambassador will visit your business for approximately 30-45 minutes. During their visit, the ambassador will ask a few questions, and  provide educational information and one-on-one consultations to help you better understand the COVID-19 risks and requirements based on the most recent provincial operating requirements. Ambassadors are employed by NSF International and are simply ready to help!
