Supporting Strategies icon showing a bar graph with an arrow trending upwardsSupporting Strategies

The Growing Manitoba's Economy report recommends alignment of strategies that have implications for economic development to improve overall responsiveness and encourage a culture of entrepreneurship in Manitoba. For example, future workforce development programming must align with the priorities identified and address alignment between industry and training programs. Sector strategies are important to identify investment opportunities and address barriers in Manitoba's strategic sectors.

 

Look North

Look North is an economic movement by northerners for northerners to help unlock the economic potential of the north. Initiated in 2016, Look North is developing and implementing local solutions that focus on regional strengths and showcase northern Manitoba as a place for opportunity and investment.

The Look North priorities and structure align with the Economic Growth Action Plan. As the lead entity for Look North, the Communities Economic Development Fund (CEDF) will also function as the regional partner for northern Manitoba to coordinate economic development programming and support implementation of the Economic Growth Action Plan.

 

Climate and Green Plan

Manitoba's Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan sets out a made-in-Manitoba solution to climate change that will sustain the environment for future generations while supporting Manitoba's economy. Key elements of the plan focus on innovation and clean tech, clusters of opportunity, and financing and investment.

 

Regulatory Accountability: Reduce Red Tape

The Manitoba government is leading an initiative to reduce red tape and improve regulatory accountability as part of its plan to fix the finances, repair the services and rebuild the provincial economy. This initiative will lower the cost of understanding and complying with regulations on stakeholders, such as municipalities, not-for-profits and businesses. Manitoba is already making progress in its goal of being the most improved province for regulatory accountability by 2020.
