Volunteer Opportunities

Sector Committee Members
The application process for our 2022 Sector Committees is officially underway!
Every year, ClimateActionWR recruits subject matter experts and passionate community members to join one of our three committees, which relate to one of the three largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting emitting sectors within Waterloo Region:
• Transportation Sector Committee
• Workplaces Sector Committee
• Residential Sector Committee

Sector committees take a ‘birds-eye’ view of their sector, being aware of initiatives related to climate change mitigation within the boundaries of Waterloo Region. They take on projects and initiatives related to their sector, to accelerate progress toward achieving our community’s GHG reduction targets: 50% GHG reduction by 2030, and an 80% GHG reduction by 2050. Sector committee projects are aligned with the actions outlined in our community climate action strategy, TransformWR.
Sector committee applicants must agree to participate for the full 2022 calendar year, which includes one monthly meeting (1.25 hours), three ‘All committee meetings’ (every 4 months), and at least 4 hours of additional contributions monthly (total of ~6 hours monthly).

Opportunities to Support

ClimateActionWR depends upon the support and engagement of our community. If you are interested in what we do and would like to learn more, please contact us at

We are also always looking to support sustainability leaders in Waterloo Region. If you have a project or an opportunity that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions towards our target, please let us know at

Everybody belongs in the future we are envisioning together, and thus, there is room for everyone in this work. There has to be. It will take significant effort and community collaboration to realize the goals outlined within them. ClimateActionWR will continue to convene partners around these strategic directions and build momentum towards change.

For our community and for generations to come.

In TransformWR, 78 action items have been identified which must be completed by 2030 to set us on the path to success. In some cases, the first step forward is to identify the lead organization for the actions. Do you see an action in TransformWR that you or an organization you are associated with would like to become involved with? Let us know! Connect with the ClimateActionWR team at

Whether we can support you, or you’d like to support us – we’d love to start a conversation with you! Reach out today.
