Windsor-Essex is a region with a population of an estimated 375,000 people. With several Windsor-Essex communities being voted the safest place in Canada to live, and being reported year-after-year as the fourth most diverse region in Canada, Windsor Essex has much to boast about.
Windsor-Essex borders a large US urban centre (Detroit), has a mid-size Canadian city as its hub (Windsor), and is oftentimes defined by the smaller communities and townships that contribute to the regions economic growth (Amherstburg, Essex, Kingsville, Leamington, Lakeshore, LaSalle, Pelee Island and Tecumseh.)
