Waterloo Region

The Creative Capital of Canada is right here… in all of us.

Welcome to the Creative Capital of Canada

Hi. We’re a group of people, companies and organizations that want to publically celebrate what led to Waterloo Region’s success…problem solving creativity.

The movement started with a thought and conversation and led to a growing commitment from early supporters. Others joined and the movement continues to grow and cheer on Waterloo Region’s creativity.


Because a community attracts what it celebrates and slowly loses what it doesn’t. And, we need to attract and retain smart minds in order to compete globally. It’s that simple. Problem solving put this region on the map. We think it’s time to claim that spot on the map as the Creative Capital of Canada.

We’re not a taskforce. We’re a celebration. Join us.

What's Your Mojo

You probably have your own "problem-solving with fresh perspectives" story to tell. That’s what this is all about; celebrating what we do so well in Waterloo Region and building a special kind of confidence the world will notice.

Don’t be shy, we’d love you to share a creative story or two with the rest of the region.
