Manitoba Business Gateways
The Manitoba Business Gateways are resource centres providing information and referrals for a wide range of business and employment information and services.
The Business Gateway is another step toward the Manitoba government’s goal of making the province’s business and employment information and services easier to find, easier to understand, and easier to use – whether accessed online, by phone, or in person.
Information and referrals that can be accessed through the Manitoba Business Gateway include:
- Starting a business
- Regulations, registrations, licenses and permits
- Taxation and tax incentives
- Financial programs
- Market research, marketing and planning
- Business planning and feasibility assessment
- Recruiting, retaining, training and managing employees
- Skills development
- Industry and market specialists
- Business expansion and growth
- Doing business with government
- Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba (WCB)
- Manitoba Companies Office
- Innovation and Technology Commercialization
