Thank you for your interest in Leadership Waterloo Region’s Community Leadership Development (Core) Program.

Before You Apply

It is strongly suggested that before you submit your application, that you speak with our CEO Diane Wiles. Diane can answer your questions not covered online, give you an in depth perspective of the program and find out a bit more about you and why you want to apply. You can contact Diane directly via e-mail, or by phone at: 519-742-7338.

To help you plan out your application responses, we have developed a Core Program Application Resource for you to use! 

Please ensure you have read and noted the program dates for 2021-2022 and consulted your employer to ensure they are supporting your application and need for time to attend Leadership Days. Failure to attend the sessions could result in your inability to graduate from the program.
