New Facebook Group: Windsor-Essex Women in Skilled Trades
On November 8th, we launched a private Facebook Group for Windsor-Essex Women in Skilled Trades. This group is designed to give Women in Windsor-Essex who are working in the trades, or looking to start a career in the trades, a supportive community. In the group, women and girls can ask questions, get advice, and chat with other women working in the skilled trades without any insecurity or judgement. Any females working in, or looking to start a career in, the skilled trades are welcome to join the conversation.
WE LIP Success Story:
In February 2018, the Windsor Essex Local Immigration Partnership launched the #WEbelong | #noussommesWE public awareness campaign designed to encourage citizens to take a proactive step towards making Windsor and Essex County truly welcoming for all. WE Belong works to promote a unified community, standing together in collective action against prejudice, racism and discrimination. Windsor-Essex residents and organizations were encouraged to complete a pledge card and fill in the action they will take to make a difference in our community.
We thank all those who have participated in the #WE belong | #noussommesWE initiative and encourage the community to continue with their acts of welcoming, be them big or small.

Our city is changing and how we move around is changing too.
The City of Windsor is exploring how their transit system can more effectively serve our community.
“To do this, we are looking at the changing needs of our city. We’re looking at how to better connect people to school, work, services, and more. We’re looking at how transit can support the healthy growth and development of our neighbourhoods. We’re looking at more than transit.“
To get involved, take the Online Survey. The survey will be available until December 31st, 2018
