Hey Neighbour! Application 

One of the City of Waterloo’s neighbourhood strategy goals over the next several years is to build new connections between neighbours. Caring and compassionate neighbours contribute to quality of life, and during the pandemic we have seen neighbours sharing and providing important support to each other.

The newly launched Hey Neighbour! program has been created to help neighbours build and maintain connections to strengthen a sense of community. We are seeking interested residents to take a neighbourhood leadership role as Block Connectors to spark these new connections. A Block Connector is someone who helps neighbours residing in close proximity to each other to share information, support one another, and build a sense of community in good times and challenging ones. During the pandemic these connections will largely happen online, via social media or email lists.
