The Centralization of Social Need: what has been the impact on the affected populations of the centralization of social services into Windsor’s downtown core?

This study will explore how the centralization of social services and those who use them impact the environment of Downtown Windsor. The goal of the project is to understand how the location of social services effects the movement of people who are using these services. Stakeholders, businesses, and residents will be surveyed in order to understand the perceived impact on these groups. The project will also use mapping in order to analyse the physical locations of the services, service users and other environmental factors which may have an impact on this movement. The Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association will use the data in order to further advocate for businesses and stakeholders.
