The Western Ontario Wardens Caucus Inc. (WOWC) is a not-for-profit organization representing 15 upper and single tier municipalities in Southwestern Ontario with more than three million residents. Our purpose is to enhance the prosperity and overall wellbeing of rural and small urban communities across the region. WOWC advocates on behalf of Counties on key items such as; infrastructure, transportation, long term care, broadband and economic development.
The WOWC recently adopted its strategic approach for advocacy in 2022 and early 2023 and identified a series of key priorities for the coming year. This information is intended to continue building on the collaboration with the member municipalities of Southwestern Ontario.
The WOWC in partnership with the Western Ontario Community Futures Corporation Association (WOCFDCA) is now championing a regional Economic Development Strategic Plan. This work is the result of extensive stakeholder consultation and dialogue, with businesses and representatives of key economic development stakeholders.
By working together, the Provincial Government, the WOWC and the municipalities of Southwestern Ontario can provide our residents and businesses with the services, supports and infrastructure they need to thrive today and into the future, while planning for growth and a rapidly aging population.
