New Bridge Jobs Guide Outlines Direct And Spin-Off Jobs
Tuesday, March 26, 2019
Workforce WindsorEssex has launched a new bridge job guide called “Bridging Our Workforce: A Guide to Jobs related to the Gordie Howe International Bridge.”
This guide shares the list of jobs that will be required during the construction phase and the operation and maintenance phase, while also projecting a list of spin-off jobs that related to this major infrastructure project.
In total, Workforce WindsorEssex has identified 151 individual jobs that will be required during this 36-year project.
Using Bridging North America’s estimate of 2,500 jobs created directly by the construction, operation, and maintenance of the new bridge, Workforce WindsorEssex used a Canadian statistical analysis tool called EMSI Analyst to predict that 1,091 additional jobs will be created on both sides of the border, including 296 jobs in retail and 198 jobs in accommodation and food service.
“Through our website and this guide, Workforce WindsorEssex is committed to sharing job opportunities related to the construction and operation of the Gordie Howe International Bridge with the Windsor-Essex community. The spin-off jobs announced today are another opportunity for our community to benefit from this major infrastructure project,” said Michelle Suchiu, Executive Director of Workforce WindsorEssex.
The bridge jobs guide also shares information about the Gordie Howe International Bridge project and how the community can find and apply for jobs related to the bridge.
