Study in Urban Geography: An Evaluation of Economic and Industrial Development in Windsor

Mark G. Bocchini


Growth and change of cities and towns has always been of great interest to geographers. Growth of municipalities varies widely with the type of urban areas themselves and their geographic location. Many variables come together to form the cities we have today. These variables can be government influence, technology, natural resources, climate, and physiography.

This thesis will assess economic development policies of the city of Windsor. Primary concern will be given to sectoral diversification policy, new aggressive policy, and intra-manufacturing diversification.
