The City of Windsor and Workforce WindsorEssex have launched  an essential worker registry.

Workforce WindsorEssex will collect resumes for an essential worker registry to link unemployed individuals to available essential service positions, as defined by the Province of Ontario.

“The Essential Worker Registry will make it easier for all area Employment Ontario service providers to fill urgent job vacancies collaboratively through a resume database,” said Workforce WindsorEssex CEO Justin Falconer. “Anyone able to work in a non-healthcare essential business is encouraged to register locally through our website.”

The City’s Employment & Training Services department will further collaborate with Workforce WindsorEssex to enhance the existing WeSkills Database to assist essential businesses who are struggling to find employees as a result of COVID-19.

This initiative will assist with identifying suitable and willing candidates to fill more than 200 essential service job requests that have been received from local employers. In the last month, those employers have been sent over 240 resumes, already resulting in 42 direct hires.
