Researching business funding and the local job market should now be easier.

Workforce WindsorEssex on Thursday launched a new online tool called WEsearch, which provides users help with businesses and employment.

With funding from the federal and provincial governments, the region’s local employment planning council hopes to simplify the task of searching for programs and services that help business owners and job-seekers alike — just by answering a few questions.

Partners currently working with WEsearch include the Unemployed Help Centre, the Windsor-Essex Catholic School Board, the Windsor-Essex Small Business Centre, the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce, the City of Windsor and the University of Windsor.

“We have a lot of dedicated organizations and professionals in Windsor-Essex who want to help businesses grow and job-seekers find new employment,” Michelle Suchiu, acting executive director of Workforce WindsorEssex, said Thursday in a news release. “WEsearch is a community-led solution that will make finding available programs and services easier for job-seekers and businesses.”
