Believing in the creativity of our youth

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.

About the Creative Capital of Canada

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.
