About Workforce WindsorEssex

Workforce WindsorEssex is a workforce and community development board. Our mandate is to plan, facilitate and advocate for regional workforce development, defined as the development, retention, and recruitment of a wide range of skilled workers to meet the current and future economic and social development needs of Windsor-Essex.

We are an experienced leader in the development of regional labour market tools, research and guides that save others time, money and effort. These resources, created in close coordination with employment, education and industry partners, are designed to help job seekers, employers, students & educators, as well as the community, make more informed labour market decisions using locally-responsive, data-rich and unbiased resources.

Our team is comprised of project managers, researchers, community connectors, and communications professionals whose past experiences include working in government, industry and other not-for-profit organizations, locally, provincially as well as abroad. We have a strong reputation for working collaboratively with partners in employment, education and training services, while keeping a pulse on employer needs. This is critically important as it helps ensure that new tools, research and guides create positive change in the local labour market.

Workforce WindsorEssex currently receives funding under five projects: Windsor Essex Local Immigration Partnership, WE Value, Local Employment Planning Council, WEskills, and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
