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 Caucus has identified the following key priorities for the coming year:
Affordable and Attainable Housing
Broadband Infrastructure Investment & Advocacy
Mental Health and Addictions
Furthermore, the Caucus will continue advocating for Long-Term Care and Seniors Funding as well as ensuring that municipalities are included in the Ontario Health Teams governance. These two issues were identified in the past and will continue to be supported on an as-needed basis.
“The WOWC looks forward to continuing to collaborate with the member municipalities in Southwestern Ontario, and to use the collective regional power to advocate on the key priorities at both the Provincial and Federal level,” stated WOWC Chair George Cornell. “The Caucus will build on the successful advocacy efforts of the past year and continue its important work into 2022 and early 2023 through additional research, delegations with both levels of government, and ongoing collaboration with regional stakeholders.”
