The Province of Ontario is funding the Healthy Kids Community Challenge project. The Province is responsible for approving the Theme Based Action Plans submitted by the project lead. Additionally the Province is providing general advertising for the project throughout the Windsor-Essex region.
The City of Windsor, through an agreement with all of the Essex County municipalities will act as the project lead. This requires the City of Windsor to act as the agreement holder with the Province. The City of Windsor will coordinate the regional activities included in the provincially approved Theme Based Action Plans, including the responsibilities of financial oversight of the project.
The Windsor Essex County Health Unit is a key partner and will bring to the project, their expertise in epidemiology, health and population level health promotion. To maximize existing community engagement channels, existing resources will be leveraged through the strategic development of partners that are best able to address the, Provincially mandated, topic areas.
