Founded late in the 20th century (1997), the Kitchener Waterloo Software Quality Association is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit, independent organization of software professionals who have an interest in quality and testing.

We offer events that enable professional networking, skills development, and learning related to software quality, software testing, technical leadership, and agile development practices.

We aim to be a safe space where new speakers can feel comfortable developing their skills, while also including more experienced speakers for our members to learn from. Furthermore, we aim to encourage and support local talent, while also providing opportunities for our members to hear from speakers outside of our area.

We value inclusion of both new and established local companies at all of our events. We also welcome members and attendees in any software-related role, not only those who focus specifically on testing. We enjoy hearing from a diverse set of perspectives so we welcome speakers and attendees of all backgrounds and lived experiences at our events.
