About Us

windsoriteDOTca – windsor’s neighbourhood news, is Windsor Ontario’s #1, locally-owned, online newspaper.

Since launching in 2010, we’ve covered the news stories everyone has been talking about, have been a reliable, consistent source of daily news and have brought readers news as it breaks.

We’re Windsor’s online destination for what’s called hyperlocal news, that is, stories about what literally happens on a neighbourhood level — in your neighbourhood.

We’re amazing at:

  • being a trusted source of knowledge, news and information on everything Windsor-Essex.
  • bringing the news to you as it breaks.
  • publishing every article as objectively and fairly as possible. Part of our core set of beliefs is to be completely opinion-free. We do not publish editorials or opinion pieces.
  • running Windsor-Essex’s largest daily Events Calendar. At any given time, readers can find hundreds of events to attend, in multiple categories, at specific venues or in certain local municipalities.
  • giving readers a look inside new and existing local businesses, restaurants, boutiques and shoppes.
  • publishing Windsor-Essex’s most comprehensive online Summer Festival Guide, the only all-local Christmas Guide and guides to other popular holidays.
  • covering neighbourhood-level news in WINDSOR-ESSEX: the stories that impact the lives of citizens in the areas where they live, work, explore, shop and entertain.
  • connecting readers to the latest in their communities, in REAL-TIME, by utilizing innovative news publishing tools and strategic marketing methods to deliver information as quickly as possible to the citizens who value it most.

Joey Labonte

Joey Labonte | Sports Writer

I've really developed a fondness for writing in high school, mostly poetry; although I have many story ideas too. I intend on taking creative writing courses, followed by college or university for journalism, in order to pursue my passion for writing. Though I live in Tecumseh, Windsor is important to me; there's a history to be read, and a story to be written, on every street.
