The Canadian Mental Health Association is joining us this month for a workshop devoted to mental wellness. Freelancers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners have unique work experiences that can result in their own mental health concerns.
To help us learn how to properly address them, Carrie Davis will be joining us to look at:
- unique stressors of entrepreneurs
- mental fitness and wellbeing of Canadas entrepreneurs
- impact of loneliness and isolation
- managing stress and mental health
- local resources
This free, one-hour event is open to everyone.

Last month Hackforge launched C3Tech, a joint initiative with The City of Windsor Bicycle Committee, CWATS, and Parallel 42 Systems. Over the remainder of 2022 we will be working with the community to build an app that provides bicycle riders with the information that will make cycling in Windsor and Essex County a safer and more viable form of transportation and leisure.
In order to build an app that serves the needs of the community, we need to hear from the community! To give everyone a chance to share their thoughts and opinions, we’re running a virtual Town Hall Forum and everyone is invited. The event is free to attend, but advance registration is required.
If you’re unable to make it on March 9th, you can still make sure your voice is heard by completing our cyclist survey or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
