Thursday, August 15, 2019


The WDBA and Bridging North America are launching a Local Community Group to assist in the delivery of the Gordie Howe International Bridge Community Benefits Plan.

  • The Sandwich Community
  • The Delray Community
  • Windsor-Essex County
  • The Greater Detroit Area
