Connecting Windsor-Essex is a non-profit organization comprised of a Board of Directors, a Board Executive, and a consortium of over 40 member companies, associations, councils and other organizations in Windsor-Essex.
CWE is funded by stakeholder groups including The City of Windsor; The County of Essex; Essex County Library; the University of Windsor; St. Clair College of Applied Arts and Technology; The Greater County of Essex District School Board; Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board; and the Counseil solaire catholique Providence. Stakeholders and consortium organizations enjoy benefits such as high-speed Internet access with cost-effective savings.
What began as an information technology project, focused primarily on building an extensive high-speed fibre optic network that would bring world-class connectivity to several of the region's leading institutions, has expanded to provide services for the region's businesses and, especially in under-serviced rural areas, residents who wanted access to high-speed Internet.
It's not about Technology itself. It's about using technology to create an environment where people and ideas connect to improve lives in Windsor-Essex.
