Pulse of the Region

The annual “Pulse of the Region” business confidence survey is co-sponsored by:

  • The University of Windsor
  • The Windsor-Essex Economic Development Corporation (WEEDC)
  • The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The survey has changed over the years but is basic aim is to capture the perceptions of local business leaders regarding current and future business conditions and economic trends in the Windsor-Essex County region.

Beginning in 2005, data collection is now underway (March 2015) for the 9th edition of this survey.  Maintenance of historical data now enables us to make meaningful comparisons and identify trends.

The survey is under the stewardship of Prof. Pete Mateja, Co-Director of the Office of Automotive Research (OAVR) at the Odette School of Business.  Project Coordinator Linda Ingram can be contacted in the Dean's Suite, 3rd Floor, Odette School of Business.
