Creative...
just like you

Watch now

At HIP, we’re committed to helping shape a vibrant and confident community that dreams big, stays creative and lives passionately. Check out what we’ve been up to.

Creative... Just Like You

Creativity isn’t exclusive to the Arts. Certainly it’s found there but it’s also found on shop floors, in neighbourhoods, kitchens, boardrooms and schoolyards. It’s in us all, somewhere, even if we don’t always call it creativity. As Waterloo Region, our hard working creative collaboration has, and continues to, generate ideas, talent and outcomes that go far beyond our small place in the World. Check out our video celebrating the creativity that is within us all and unifies our community. When we celebrate that uniqueness we’ll recognize that the Creative Capital of Canada is right here...in all of us.

We believe that dreaming is part of living. It shapes creative, confident lives and vibrant communities. That is why HIP Developments has contracted University of Waterloo faculty member Philip Beesley to create a permanent art installation, coming in the spring of 2019 at Gaslight Square in Cambridge.

Full STEAM Ahead

Launch Day

The Future will be built by our children. That’s why we’re building a facility to engage kids in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), at our Strata development. It's called LAUNCH and recently we held LAUNCH DAY, an event where kids hung out and worked with local STEAM professionals. The future is looking brighter.
