Kitchener Waterloo Association of Realtors

Thank you for being a Gold level sponsor.

Thank you for all that you and your team does to support the community and build such a amazing event. I look forward to participating this weekend.

Your Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) efforts, activities, goals, etc.  This could also include the reason you chose to support our BHM event and the change you wish to see as a result from it.

REALTORS® believe that healthy communities depend on a strong economy, safe neighbourhoods, a clean environment, access to housing and the protection of rights of property owners. KWAR recognizes the need to support and enhance the Quality of Life enjoyed by residents of Waterloo Region.

In 2020 the Black Lives Matter movement exposed inequities not only in our region but also on a global scale. On June 3rd, a KW Solidarity March held in Kitchener attracted over 20,000 supporters. The Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS® (KWAR) Board of Directors is in support of this movement and recognizes the importance of keeping this momentum of change.

In 2017 the KWAR Board of Directors adopted its own diversity policy. Today, by sponsoring the CCAWR’s 2021 BHM event we continue to build on our value of inclusion by diversifying the cultural events that we participate in.

Our REALTORS® in Waterloo Region mirror the diversity of the region and this diversity builds stronger and better communities. We are also introducing Antiracism Training Sessions that guide conversations about racism and discrimination for our members. KWAR is excited to continue our growth as an association with a membership base that serves our community.

The person in your organization that can be contacted for EDI info. and any specific EDI related website link.  For example: “Email us at… and find out more about how we’re addressing equity, diversity and inclusion!”.
