Welcome to the Research and Evidence-Based Practice Department Reports page. On this page, you will find reports and data files resulting from research initiatives conducted by the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB).

In April 2019, the WRDSB launched the Workforce Census in order to gain detailed insight as to the cultural, social and demographic makeup of our workforce. The Workforce Census is part of our ongoing commitment to equity and inclusion and the results have allowed us to hear and learn a great deal. We have identified actions and strategies going forward that will help us to better meet the needs of our employees and our students.

In total, 3844 employees participated in the WRDSB Workforce Census, representing a 40% response rate. We want to thank all who participated and helped us achieve the highest participation rate the board has seen on any system-wide staff survey in recent years.
