Moody’s Investor Service, a leading provider of credit ratings, research and analysis, gave the region the highest possible credit score this year for the 14th year in a row.
Similar to other highly rated municipalities in Ontario, Moody’s said Waterloo Region displays “strong governance and management characteristics. In addition to long-term planning for capital and operating budgets and a history of meeting fiscal targets, management adheres to conservative debt and investment management policies, thus limiting the region’s exposure to market-related risks and ensuring relatively smooth debt-servicing costs.”
Waterloo Region has historically outperformed Ontario on a number of economic and labour market indicators.
This year, the region will be spending money on projects:
•waste water treatment plant upgrades;
•landfill site maintenance and expansion;
•road network improvements and expansions;
•the rapid transit project (ION); and
•Grand River Transit garage expansions and fleet replacements.
Current and former employees at Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning have demonstrated their commitment to the college’s goals and directions by contributing more than $1 millio.
The $30 million fundraising initiative will support such capital campaign expansion projects as:
- The Cowan Health Sciences Centre,
- The Centre for Entrepreneurship
- The Engineering & Information Technology campus
- The Institute of Food Processing Technology
- The Motive Trade Centre of Excellence
- The Construction and Skilled Trades Centre
Funds from the campaign will also be used to fund student awards, enhanced library resources, equipment and technology to support student learning.
