Volunteering and Community Involvement

The Region of Waterloo appreciates the support of residents willing to assist during an emergency.

In order to best serve community needs and ensure those volunteering are safe, trained and able to help in a meaningful way, the Region recommends potential volunteers sign up ahead of time with an accredited volunteer agency that can provide proper training, screening and support.

Getting involved with a volunteer agency before an emergency occurs will improve your ability to help during a crisis or when help is needed. 

As part of its Emergency Response Plan, the Region of Waterloo is committed to partnering with community organizations that may assist in times of an emergency.
