Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada and is located in Southwestern Ontario. Separated by the Detroit River, Windsor is located south of Detroit, Michigan in the United States. Windsor is known as “The City of Roses” and residents are known as Windsorites. Windsor was settled by the French in 1749 as an agricultural settlement. It is the oldest continually inhabited European settlement in Canada west of Montreal. The area was first named Petite Côte (“Little Coast” – as opposed to the longer coastline on the Detroit side of the river.  Windsor’s French Canadian heritage is reflected in many French street names, such as Ouellette, Pelissier, and François.

The city is one of Canada’s major automobile manufacturing centres and is home to the headquarters of Chrysler Canada. The city boasts an extensive riverfront parks system and fine restaurants. Both the University of Windsor and St. Clair College are significant local employers and Windsor is the headquarters of Hiram Walker & Sons Limited, a historic distillery founded by Hiram Walker in 1858 in what was then Walkerville, Ontario. Windsor was recently listed as the number two large city for economic potential in North-America and number 7 large city of the future in North America according to the FDI North-American cities of the future list.

Windsor has a well-established tourism industry. Caesars Windsor, one of the largest casinos in Canada, ranks as one of the largest local employers. The city boasts an extensive riverfront parks system and fine restaurants, such as those on Erie Street in Windsor’s Little Italy called “Via Italia”, another popular tourist destination. The Lake Erie North Shore Wine Region in Essex County has enhanced tourism in the region.
