Community Benefits

The Gordie Howe International Bridge project will include a Community Benefits Plan that will have positive impact on communities in Windsor and Detroit and reflects what our stakeholders have told us is important to them.

Community Benefits Development Process

It is anticipated that the Community Benefit Plans developed by the three Proponent teams will reflect the suggestions and input received from stakeholders. The community benefit plans will be submitted to WDBA for evaluation as part of the RFP submission. Once the private-sector partner is selected following the RFP evaluation, the private-sector partner will deliver the plan with stringent oversight from WDBA. It is anticipated that the plan will be implemented during the construction and operation phases of the Gordie Howe International Bridge project.
