We support the development of a strong, sustainable local economy by:
Fostering understanding of current and future workforce needs,
Facilitating partners to make strategic investment in education, training and employment opportunities; and
Creating opportunities to influence and advocate for change in the community with respect to workforce development.
Workforce WindsorEssex (legally Workforce Development Board Windsor Essex) was created as an independent, community-based board in October 2008 as a result of significant foundation work by the City of Windsor, County of Essex, WindsorEssex Development Commission and Province of Ontario.
The board members are community leaders with a strategic outlook on the Windsor-Essex community as a whole in addition to ties to key sectors in business, labour, health, social welfare, new comers and education.
