Our midtown Mount Hope neighbourhood is one of the project neighbourhoods for the RAIN Smart program through REEP Green Solutions. The project began in summer 2016 with a huge contest and two residents won big incentives towards front yard make overs designed to capture rain water on their properties. There are more incentives available to Mount Hope residents throughout 2017 and 2018.

    I acknowledge that I am on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, land promised to Six Nations, which includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. As an ally to traditional peoples from across this region I am committed to working toward dismantling racism that I, as a Canadian citizen, have perpetuated and benefited from. I continue to seek understanding and to learn ways to decolonize my research, my classrooms, and my relationships.
