April 2018


Here in the Region of Waterloo we are lucky to have a reliable supply of energy - for lighting our homes, charging our phones and fueling our transportation. It’s so reliable that it’s practically invisible. We often don’t recognize its value until the power is out.        


Power Shift is an events and communication campaign that sparks conversations about the Region of Waterloo’s relationship with energy. In April 2018, check out events for children, adults and families hosted by local organizations around Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo and shift how you think about power.
