Who We Are


We are leaders in our local business and education communities, collaborating to prepare youth for the future of work. Our programs help bridge the gap between school and work so students can explore career opportunities, gain meaningful connections and learn valuable job skills.


Take a look at our 2018-19 Impact Report for more information. 




Waterloo Region’s Business & Education Partnership (BEP) is a charitable organization founded in 2002 to prepare Waterloo Region youth for the future of work. We do this by creating opportunities for local employers to inform, inspire and positively influence student’s career development. By connecting students, educators, parents and employers, we contribute to student success and community prosperity.


History & Impact


The BEP was established as a registered charitable organization by a group of leaders in our business and education communities who saw an opportunity to effectively address issues of student success, skills gaps and economic development through closer collaboration. Today, the BEP has continued to evolve to meet the changing needs of youth in Waterloo Region, and our changing employment landscape.
