Social Policy & Pathway to Potential

Researchers strategizing on a bulletin board

The Social Policy & Planning Division of Community Development & Health Services (CDHS) conducts research and develops operational plans for CDHS activities which align with strategic priorities as identified by City Council. The division identifies potential areas for collaboration between the different departments within CDHS and the public with an overarching goal of enhancing service delivery. Social Policy & Planning leads or participates in community consultations with City of Windsor departments and community groups to address issues which impact on CDHS operations and people with lived experience.

Key projects include:

  • The Windsor-Essex County Local Immigration Partnership (WELIP)
  • Pathway to Potential: The City of Windsor and County of Essex Social Investment Plan (P2P)
  • Oral Health
