Nearly 100 newcomer-residents of Windsor visited Chatham-Kent on Monday to discover more about the community, its employment possibilities and tour the municipality.
The tour was developed through Geoff Wright of the Economic Development Services department in cooperation with the College Boreal.
Those on the tour visited the Chatham YMCA, Dajcor Aluminum, YA Engage, Giant Tiger, Riverview Gardens, Enviroshake, Concentrix and St. Clair College.
The group was treated to a lunch at the Civic Centre where they were welcomed by Mayor Randy Hope and Chatham-Kent Chief Administrator Don Shropshire and heard presentations by Chatham-Kent’s Resident Attraction and Retention officials and Adult Language and Learning.
A number of videos about the community and other employment opportunities were shown as well.
