Nov. 16, 2023, Windsor, Ont. – A federal investment of more than $2.7 million to prevent gun crime and gang violence in Windsor has been made, announced Irek Kusmierczyk, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Employment, Social Development and Official Languages and Member of Parliament for Windsor-Tecumseh, and His Worship Drew Dilkens, Mayor of Windsor.

This investment will help address the root causes of crime by supporting community-led projects for young people involved in gangs or at risk of joining them – helping them set themselves up for success in life.

“Our government is committed to keeping Canadians safe. Investments in grassroots efforts are key to giving at-risk youth opportunities to chart a hopeful path in life. By bringing everyone around the table, we can create safer neighbourhoods and give every Canadian a chance at succeeding, here in Windsor and across the country,” said Irek Kusmierczyk.

Investing in crime prevention is part of the Government of Canada’s plan to keep Canadians safe.
