The WCA has received, from the City of Windsor, links to two apps:
Learn about Windsor from underground up! We have apps that display our sewer system, roads, sidewalks, addresses, buildings, parks, trails, bike lanes and routes, waterways, schools, government offices, parking lots, playgrounds, public washrooms in parks, and much, much more.
The new MappMyCity application has combined the old applications into one new and fluid experience. In the new MappMyCity, you will find the old:
We’ve also mapped things you can’t feel or see, like ward boundaries; street centreline with information about roads, speed limits, direction and more; districts of many types; property descriptions and info; services, size and distance for a number of features; and aerial photos over the years since 2000.
Visit us often! As needs expand, so will the new easy-to-use MappMyCity app.

Payment delays and disputes can cost your business a LOT of time and money. That’s why Ontario has added Prompt Payment and Adjudication to the Construction Act.
For construction, the law now requires payors to pay invoices according to fixed timelines. If your payor does not make payment when it is due, you can choose to use adjudication to enforce your right to payment. It’s a fast and inexpensive way to resolve construction payment disputes.
Prompt Payment and Adjudication rules took effect on Oct. 1, 2019 and apply to all construction projects, with few exceptions.
You can find fact sheets on Prompt Payment and Adjudication here
