Our Story

Winnipeg’s flourishing industry sectors, geographic and time zone advantages, and transportation assets—coupled with CentrePort Canada, the nation’s only trimal inland port to offer foreign trade zone advantages—make the city an exceptional draw for business.

Consider this: Winnipeg has the largest aerospace centre in Western Canada; it’s home to advanced manufacturing market leaders and boasts one of the biggest hubs for bus manufacturing in North America; agribusiness has long nourished Winnipeg’s growth, due to its world-class agricultural infrastructure; and initiatives in life sciences make Winnipeg a remarkable centre of discovery, housing the only Level 4 bio-containment lab in the country and about 40 additional R&D institutions.

Winnipeg has the lowest published electricity costs in Canada for small medium and large businesses, and KPMG ranks the city No. 1 in cost-competitiveness in Western Canada and in all U.S. cities surveyed. Named a Top Canadian Metro by Site Selection magazine thanks to exceptional public- and private-sector investments citywide, there’s never been a better time to invest in Winnipeg.
