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.
