Welcome Immigrant Investors!

Immigrant Investor Forum

On May 5, 2014 the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation hosted an Immigrant Investor Forum.  Attendees included regional immigration lawyers as well as corporate accountants.  The objective of this forum was to assist economic development with the identification and introduction of potential immigrant investors to Windsor-Essex and to develop a protocol on how we will respond to a potential investor to our region.  The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration that administers the Ontario’s Provincial Nominee Program presented an overview of what their program looks like and how they can help us achieve success with our program.
