About

District 11 Waterloo Region was formed in 1981.

Our members include those who work in and retire from education – including child care and early years, schools and school boards, post-secondary, private schools and more. We play a key role in helping members stay active and connected – with each other and the community.

District 11 is situated on the traditional territory Neutral, Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. We recognize that this territory is covered by the Upper Canada and Haldimand Treaties, and we appreciate the historic connection Indigenous peoples have to this place. We also acknowledge the urban Indigenous communities in our district.

District 11 Waterloo Region recognizes the inequities connected to colonization and commits to working towards creating a just, inclusive and vibrant community for all. We invite our members to reflect the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
