Weewerk, stylized as (weewerk), is an independent folk, roots, bluegrass, country record label and artist-management company based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was founded in 2002 as an art-and-music salon series in the apartment of Teenage USA Recordings partner Phil Klygo and artist-curator Germaine Koh.[1][2][3][4] Klygo was Festival Director of Canadian Music Week from 2001 to 2007.[5]

Weewerk has released albums from Great Lake Swimmers, Elliott Brood, United Steel Workers of Montreal, The Barmitzvah Brothers, Barzin, Ox, Two-Minute Miracles, The Burning Hell, Filly & The Flops, Proof of Ghosts, Jenny Omnichord, Don Brownrigg, FemBots, Canteen Knockout, Art Bergmann and The Travelling Band.

The label's name is a play on the name of fellow Canadian record label Nettwerk, and was named for the small apartment space in which the company was founded.
