Waterloo Regional Crimestoppers is a not-for-profit community-based charity that brings together the cooperative efforts of the police, the media and the community in the fight against crime.
- Financed through personal, corporate & service club donations
- Encourages the public to submit tips on crimes that have been committed, are being committed or are about to be committed
- Pays up to $2000 per successful tip
- Crime Stoppers will NOT ask for your name, phone number, or address and will NOT ask you to appear in court
Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

World Accord - International Development Agency of Waterloo has been chosen by Global Affairs Canada to implement their RENEW project in Nepal over the coming four years. Rights and Economic development for Nepal’s Empowered Women (RENEW) was one of 21 projects chosen from the 196 submitted under the first round of the Development Impact Window call for proposals at Global Affairs Canada. The project, valued at close to $1.5 million, engages the poor and marginalized Dalit women of Nepal and will help them to recognize and enjoy their human rights as well as bring them opportunities to develop their social and economic capacities. This is women’s socio-economic empowerment. Their standing in their communities and society in general will go up. This project will directly benefit 900 women and their families (more than 4,000 people in all) and indirectly impact many more. http://worldaccord.org/
