Windsor as a Retirement Destination

"WEARCI" has been spreading the word about Windsor-Essex as a retirement haven.

WEARCI estimates that more than 1,000 retirees have come to the region from the year 2010 when initiatives began to 2015.

“People are moving here. People are recognizing you can sell your million-dollar home in Toronto or out west, come here, put money in the bank, and still live in a million-dollar home — for less.”

The Windsor-Essex Active Retirement Community Initiative, (WEARCI:WE-ARE-KEY) is a not-for-profit, cooperative, marketing partnership formed by the Windsor-Essex Home Builders Association, Windsor-Essex County Association of REALTORS® and Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce. 

WEARCI’s mission is to foster economic diversity with long-term sustainability, attract the affluent and active 50-plus market, create new jobs, encourage investment, revitalize the real estate market, and ultimately create a larger economy for the region.
