The Youth Creativity Fund vows to help foster the next generation of creativity in Waterloo Region by providing funding to students who want to bring a creative idea to life. A shared initiative of BEP Waterloo Region, the Greater Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge Chambers of Commerce and the Creative Capital Of Canada (CCOC) movement, we exist to support our region’s youth because we believe in the continued creative success of our region.
BEP Waterloo Region is a charity that makes every day Career Day. We help youth to explore their career options, set goals and make plans to achieve them as part of a lifelong process of proactively managing their career journey.
By guiding youth to make informed decisions about their future, we contribute to building a healthy, happy, and prosperous community.
The Creative Capital of Canada is a group of people, companies, and organizations that want to publicly 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. More and more people 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.
