Polonia Centre (Windsor) Inc. is committed to promoting our Polish culture and traditions as well as supporting activities which strengthen the fabric that binds the Polish community making it successful within our Canadian Society. The Organization owns and operates the Global Maintenance Company which provides the source of revenue to meet our mandate.

For the past 30+ years, the Cultural Committee of Polonia Centre (Windsor) Inc. organized the Annual “Dozynki / Harvest Festival”. The event features the traditional harvest activities celebrated in Poland and promotes the accomplishments and achievements of our Polish youth in Windsor. We also present our annual donations in support of Polish Organizations, and others, that mirror our mandate. Due to the restrictions imposed by Covid-19, this year’s event was cancelled, but our commitment in support of our community has not faltered.
