Resources for research, planning and evaluation purposes

These tools and resources were originally created for internal use by Region of Waterloo Public Health staff. In sharing these tools and resources more broadly, we have tried to make them relevant for external practitioners as well.

However, as you move further into the supporting documents and hyperlinks, you will notice that some documents are mostly relevant only within the context of Region of Waterloo Public Health.

Please also see our Reports and Data page for other reports that may be of interest to the public health sector.
