“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.”
