Look North Report and Action Plan For Manitoba's Northern Economy


Developed by northerners, for northerners, the Look North Report and Action Plan (PDF) is the result of extensive input from communities across northern Manitoba, hundreds of conversations, workshops, and roundtable meetings, along with desktop research.  The report identifies six priority areas, coined "the six things that matter most to northerners" with the greatest potential to grow the northern economy.

The Six Things That Matter Most

  • Northern mineral and other resource potential
  • Indigenous engagements and partnerships
  • Strategic infrastructure investment
  • Housing challenges and opportunities
  • Enterprise eco-system of support
  • Education, training and workforce development
