Using this Platform
Engage Region of Waterloo is an online forum for civic engagement. Read what others are saying about important Region of Waterloo topics, then post your own statement. Region officials will read the statements and incorporate them into their decision process.
When you post your first statement, you will be asked for your name and home address. This confidential information is only used to identify statements from residents in and near Region of Waterloo - so that users know which statements are from local residents. Please review our civility and privacy guidelines before you make a post.
All topics types, including surveys on this platform are intended to facilitate discussions about local issues, which is why your responses and City/ Township of residence will be made public. Your address will be kept confidential and you will have the option not to display your name. To submit your responses privately to staff just select that option when you reach the “submit my response” page.
Engage Region of Waterloo is run by Peak Democracy, a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. They will keep your information confidential per their strict privacy agreement.
