The impacts of climate change were felt profoundly in the Essex Region in 2019, and the frequency of extreme weather is expected to increase over the coming decades. On November 29 2019, ERCA,  the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, other agencies, and all municipalities came together with the University of Windsor to host a Climate Action Symposium so we can move forward collectively and urgently.
