Over the past year, the Gordie Howe International Bridge team has been busy working with more than 50 agencies and associations to deliver the numerous workforce and neighbourhood initiatives set out through the project Community Benefits Plan. Since the Plan’s 2019 launch, new partnerships, programs and community investments have benefitted local residents, businesses and organizations within the host communities and beyond.
In addition to quarterly reports, the project team is pleased to share comprehensive details of the Community Benefit Plan’s progress through the first Community Benefits Year-in-Review Report.
“The success of the Community Benefits Plan depends on positive relationships with residents, and this includes being fully transparent with our progress,” says Heather Grondin, WDBA’s Vice President of Corporate Affairs and External Relations. “The Plan is based on community-identified priorities and we’re proud to report that we’ve invested over $1 million into initiatives to date. We look forward to continuing the momentum and working closely with our neighbours in Sandwich and Southwest Detroit.”
