I can’t say enough about the tremendous benefit of Waterwolf membership. Our global community is shrinking & Waterwolf enables us to think about concerns on a regional basis and share best practices with our neighbors. We have gained so much capacity in the region simply by cooperating and sharing information with each other. Assisting communities with having Zoning Bylaws & OCP’s in place has placed communities in a position to welcome any development opportunities that come along. The power of member municipalities working together makes anything possible in the region. Thanks Waterwolf!

The Town of Hanley is a member of WaterWolf, a grassroots project for regional cooperation. WaterWolf has become an avenue for Provincial advocacy for our specific area.
We have taken advantage of this membership for essential tools in the regulations of planning with the adoption of the Official District Plan (WaterWolf Growth Management Plan) and Zoning Bylaw, a Development Appeals Board, District Board of Revision, and the services of the staff Community Planner. The resources that WaterWolf have provided us with include contact with a Bylaw Enforcement Officer and Building Official; Basic Emergency Management and Building Standards training; newsletters with pertinent information needed for day-to-day operations of the municipality, zoning bylaw amendments and development plans; GIS mapping; and enhanced networking with member municipalities.
We look forward to future educational growth and regional purchasing opportunities with WaterWolf!
