With its close proximity to the US border, there are thousands of Windsor-Essex residents who cross the border daily for work and education. This phenomenon makes the commuter flows in Windsor-Essex unique. This project aimed to gather information on this segment of our workforce to understand our workforce mobility across the border and also highlight unique cross-border partnerships in workforce development. This report increases understanding of the impact of cross-border labour mobility and the benefits and challenges our unique situation brings.
This project falls under the Integrated Planning LEPC Pillar and was overseen by the Employer Engagement Working Group.
