2. Employment Services

The City of Windsor's Employment and Training Services (ETS) can assist with the following:

ETS prides itself on providing high-quality no-charge employment services and client matching that help re-connect the unemployed with suitable employment opportunities.

3. Business Improvement Areas

A Business Improvement Area (BIA) is an association of property and business owners within a specified district who join together in beautification, promotion and other development activities aimed at stimulating local business in that district. BIAs must have the official approval of the City, in accordance with legislation set out in the Ontario Municipal Act.

Effective BIAs benefit not only businesses and the community but Windsor's overall image as well. They can be an economic and social anchor to surrounding neighbourhoods and help to stabilize and add vitality to the local community. Early in 2003, the Planning Department was assigned to act as the point of first contact within City administration for matters pertaining to Windsor's BIAs.
