From yesterday’s Windsor Star:
Representatives of seven local organizations were clearly astonished Wednesday when they learned of the size of a federal funding announcement - $13.3 million for them to share, to upgrade the programs they offer to help new Canadians settle and prosper in Windsor and Essex County.
In announcing the funding Wednesday, the area's only government MP Jeff Watson (C - Essex) told more than 100 clients and program providers at Windsor's New Canadians Centre for Excellence that the new funding will go beyond providing basic services. The money, he predicted, will ultimately spur the battered region's economic resurgence.
"The organizations we salute today provide valuable services that are important to Canada's growth," said Watson. "By the year 2012, immigration will account for all of the net growth in Canada's labour force .... We need them to succeed and this government is committed to helping them succeed."
The government described the new funding as "the largest single federal contribution ever made for newcomers to our community." It is to be distributed by the Department of Citizenship and Immigration, over the next two years.
Many were quick to suggest the extra funding will pay off and result in their clients - 7,500 newcomers to the Windsor area - integrating more quickly, resuming or beginning well-paying careers and spurring entrepreneurship and new investment.
Just for giggles — read the comments. Don’t be surprised if you feel your IQ actually dropping in the process.
