The Connectivity Table is a unique approach with discussion focus on providing immediate coordinated and integrated responses, through mobilization of resources to address situations facing individuals, families or communities with acute elevated risk factors.
Connectivity brings health and social service agencies to a weekly meeting to collaboratively and proactively address situations of elevated risk and support individuals to access the services they need. In doing so, organizations and systems are immediately responsive and begin to make systematic improvements to improve service delivery, with the long term vision of reducing emergency room admissions, child protection cases, prosecutions, violent crime and youth victimization.

Taylor Newberry Consulting was engaged by Connectivity Waterloo Region (Connectivity KW4 and Connectivity Cambridge North Dumfries) to complete two evaluation projects. The first evaluated the implementation of the Connectivity model. The second evaluated service user experiences and the impact on use of emergency services.
The four Connectivity Tables in Waterloo Wellington work collaboratively regarding a consistent privacy process. A joint training event included a privacy workshop with Blair Witzel, Consultant MD+A Health Solutions and was an opportunity to provide an update on the work of the tables. A joint reporting document was released at that time.
In September 2015, Connectivity Waterloo Region was announced as a recipient of IACP/Motorola Webber Seavey Award.
