WDBA presents to Bridging Our Local Economy event sponsored by the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation

Michael Cautillo, President and Chief Executive Officer, spoke of the importance of the Windsor-Detroit border to the economies of both Canada and the United States

The construction and eventual operation of the Gordie Howe International Bridge will result in new opportunities for regional businesses that supply goods, materials and services for the project.  To help regional businesses prepare themselves, representatives from the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority took part in a supplier information forum hosted by the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation on June 25, 2015.

More than 280 business people from the Windsor-Essex region attended the event.
