The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce and Pathway to Potential are hosting an information luncheon with the topic of ‘what is a living wage and how it is good for your business.’

Matt Marchand, President and CEO, Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce says, “A living wage has long-term economic, social and health benefits for employers, their staff and the community.”

Catherine Ludgate from Vancity Credit Union located in Vancouver will be the keynote speaker, talking about the credit union’s journey to becoming one of Canada’s largest living wage employers, and how this has helped their members and the communities where they live and work.

This luncheon will be the launch of the Windsor-Essex Living Wage campaign. Using the national framework for a living wage developed by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and other leading experts, Windsor-Essex becomes the 10th community in Ontario and 36th in Canada to launch a campaign.

The luncheon takes place on Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 from 11:30am to 1:30pm at the Caboto Club.
