Community Benefits Initiative Brings Art to Gordie Howe International Bridge Construction Site

Creating opportunities for local community members is the goal of the Workforce Development and Participation Strategy of the Gordie Howe International Bridge Community Benefits Plan. While most commonly thought of as jobs for construction and skilled trade workers, a special initiative gave local artists from Walpole Island First Nation, Caldwell First Nation and Southwest Detroit the chance to contribute their talents to the Canadian and US construction sites.
