President's Message


Dear Members and Visitors,

My name is Giuseppe (Joe) Balsamo and I am the President of CIBPA Windsor for the 2023/24 year.  I am excited to bring this amazing organization into a recognized symbol that is known within the Windsor-Essex area for our community involvement and charity work, while keeping our Italian heritage at the forefront.

CIBPA Windsor is always focused on the 3 CIBPA Pillars.  They are:

  1. Business Networking
  • Connecting people and foresting business relationships amongst CIBPA members.
  1. Philanthropy
  • Education and community is at the core of all our events.  Annually, CIBPA Windsor gives out over thousands in scholarships and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities within our community.
  1. Italian Heritage
  • We are Canadian grown with Italian roots and are very proud of that.
  • We continue to build a positive image of the Italian business community in Windsor.

With this focus, and working as a unified organization, we will achieve great things together!

“We all tend to filter the world around us through what we know.  So try and go beyond what you already know, fill your mind with the new, nourish it with different interests, open it to the extraordinary.  Life is too short to let the world we experience be restricted by our own limited vision.” – Sergio Marchionne

Come join in the CIBPA Windsor vision and we can go on this journey together.



Giuseppe (Joe) Balsamo

CIBPA Windsor, President
