After 15 months of development, the WE Value Team announced that Settlement Assessments have begun at the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario’s Windsor Learning Centre. Workforce WindsorEssex had been working to engage the community around the partnership. This included the coordination of the Steering & Evaluation Committee and the meetings to first introduce the Partnership and then train relevant staff on the Community Partner Portals that support client referrals.

We were thrilled to have 5 media outlets attend the event, and their coverage is linked below where available:

Beyond the media, staff and attendees were able to share photos of the event on their private Facebook and Twitter. The event was well attended by our community partners and other mainstream organizations as well as those funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
