Windsor, November 17, 2022 – The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association (DWBIA). These two organizations represent thousands of local businesses and are working together with the goal of providing even more savings and benefits to their respective members.

“This is an exciting opportunity for DWBIA members to experience some of the benefits of Chamber membership” said Chamber CEO Rakesh Naidu. “It’s a great way for our organization to reach out to so many unique local businesses and introduce them to what the Chamber does and how they can benefit from Chamber membership.”

“Our mandate has always been to oversee the improvement and beautification of the core, and to develop and maintain a thriving and safe community that attracts shoppers, tourists, and new business,” said DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans. “By partnering with the Chamber, we will collaborate for civic improvement and create an even more attractive, marketable reason to live and do business downtown.”

Under this new partnership, any Downtown Windsor BIA member, even if they are not a member of the Chamber of Commerce, can take advantage of Chamber Affinity programs. This includes access to deals on home, auto, and business insurance, group insurance plans, and discounts on office supplies among other things.

Additionally, the first ten Downtown Windsor BIA members with 5 employees or fewer that become Chamber members at the Business Builder tier will receive $50 off the cost of their membership for the first year, as well as the ability to pay their membership in monthly installments. A unique benefit only offered to those who join early.

This exciting partnership is set to commence January 1, 2023.
