During these challenging times, it’s important to remember the safety of our friends and neighbours BUT also celebrate the great things happening in our region. That’s the reason why we launched #YQGStandsStrong.

At our 2021 Virtual Annual General Meeting (Thursday June 10th, 2021) we also launched the #YQGStandsStrong video series, profiling 10 select businesses & events in the region, how they pivoted and adapted since the onset of COVID-19 in March 2020, and how those modifications to their businesses have contributed success and new practices to continue into the future.

Below is a profile of each business, and as well a teachable moment for each. Click on the links for more details.

In the mean time, people are still contributing. Still engaging. And still doing great things for our friend, neighbours, and those that need the most help right now. Please continue to share the good message on social media – we’re continuing to look through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for those using #YQGStandsStrong and we’ll continue to share those messages – and flood social message with positivity and good news during these challenging times.



We’ve provided graphics available for download so you can join in the message on your own social channels, or print & place in your home or businesses windows. Click here for the graphics.

Join in the positive vibe in the region – and share your good news pictures and stories about Windsor Essex with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
