Recognizing the economy’s health is tied to the health of our communities, The Winnipeg Chamber has been an outspoken advocate for a comprehensive provincial strategy to support Manitoba business. We’re deeply pleased with the province’s recent work to build that plan (including a summit co-hosted with The Chamber for private business owners) as we look for action that leverages our strengths, addresses modern opportunities and shares prosperity with all Manitobans.
- Filling out the economic growth strategy, with a particular effort to address Manitoba’s lack of access to capital
- Changes at Growth, Enterprise and Trade, including increased collaboration and information sharing between the provincial government’s 40 economic development programs (20 live in GET)
- Evolving the ROI framework that evaluates development priorities
- NAFTA, carbon pricing, and reinvigorating the public sector
