Job Market

In 2008, the Windsor-Essex County workforce suffered during a bad economy. We were a community that was focused on automotive manufacturing. For 2 years, Windsor-Essex County had one of Canada's highest rates for people without jobs because of the recession.

Over the past few years, Windsor has been recovering from this recession. Our economy has started to grow in new areas and industries, and we have attracted many businesses that represent many different job areas.

In 2011 Windsor-Essex was named one of the top Seven Most Intelligent Communities in the world by the Intelligent Community Forum.

There is great potential in our region as we continue to look forward to the future. There are many sectors in our region that are promising and are growing. This growth will lead to the creation of new jobs and build on jobs that already exist.
