Hold the Line is a local nonprofit organization made up of artists, community builders, sustainability advocates, and Waterloo Region enthusiasts. Their name, Hold the Line, refers to the countryside line. Created in 2009, it was a way to control development and urban sprawl by constraining future growth within the Region's urban areas. Three of the festival organizers are Faculty of Environment grads.
