Living Wage Waterloo Region was developed in 2014 in an attempt to encourage local employers to pay a living wage.  The program also serves as an avenue to acknowledge and celebrate employers that do pay a living wage and to have a significant impact on the lives of workers employed in sectors that have experienced erosion in average wages over the last number of years. The Living Wage Employer Recognition program began with ten employers and has continued to gain momentum over the past two years.
