About Us

Windsor-Essex Communities in motion (W-E CIM) is a comprehensive, community-wide health promotion strategy. It was launched to create “a culture of physical activity” in Windsor-Essex County. W-E CIM continues to breed success because of the strength and commitment of it’s community partnerships. Many successful projects that W-E CIM has brought to the Windsor-Essex County area include:

  • in motion music mixup: a 10 month weekday radio program
  • Zoomers in motion: a comprehensive regional project that aimed to supports adults 55+ to be more active
  • Local physical activity research: lead by the University of Windsor-Faculty of Human Kinetics
  • Regional Equipment Sharing Program: a regional equipment lending program that supports in motion partners to try new activities with their communities
  • in motion events (annual) like: Family Day in motion, 12 o’clock in motion Walk around Windsor-Essex County
  • in motion awards (annual): to celebrate local community partners and champions

The national in motion brand was brought to our Windsor-Essex County region by the South West Area Recreation Guild (SWARG) in 2008. SWARG is a collective action of community partners that encourages a “culture of physical activity” in the Southwestern Ontario region in the tri-county area: Windsor-Essex County, Chatham-Kent, Sarnia-Lambton.
