The Western Ontario Warden’s Caucus (WOWC), a not-for-profit organization representing 14 counties and Chatham-Kent in Western Ontario, has led a submission to the Government of Ontario’s Moving Ontario Forward consultation. This consultation is requesting input on how to allocate funding on critical infrastructure needs and an integrated transportation network across the province. About $15 Billion is available over 10 years for projects outside the GTHA.
The WOWC consulted with member municipalities, the nine single-tier municipalities in the region and various non-government organizations including the Southwestern Ontario Transportation Alliance (SWOTA) and Transport Action Ontario (TAO). The submission includes a number of strategic areas, including our $400 Million (over 5 years) Network Southwest plan.
