Over the past year or so, we have been fortunate enough to participate in an Ontario Job Creation Partnership, funded through Employment Ontario. This program has allowed us to bring some much needed expertise to NWL, while allowing participants some great first hand experience with both our memebrs and our organization.

First, we received a significant boost to our social media, which was much needed. This also helped us to go through our rebranding process. Next, we were able to focus on member outreach, to gather feedback, update our database to have current member information, and to work towards developing better resources for our Area Coorindators and general members. Finally, we were able to relaunch our legacy Business Watch Program under the new name of My Business Neighbourhood, and use it to develop a fundrasing strategy for moving forward.

On behalf of our organization, I would like to thank our JCP participants and MTCU. Without your support, growth would be difficult in times like these.
