Winnipeg, Manitoba leaders commit to economic development – Construct Connect

May 28, 2024

WINNIPEG – Manitoba Premier Wab Kinew and Winnipeg Mayor Scott Gillingham took to the stage recently to commit to working together on economic revitalization of the province’s capital city as well as other areas in need.

The two leaders took part in a question-and-answer session at an Economic Development Winnipeg (EDW) reception during the organization’s annual general meeting moderated by EDW president and CEO Ryan Kuffner.

Kinew said Winnipeg is core to the provincial GDP and growth but infrastructure investment can’t focus just within or around the Perimeter and that Westman, the Pembina Valley and northern Manitoba are all priorities for investing in infrastructure, states a Manitoba Heavy Construction Association (MHCA) release.

He also pledged to collaborate with business to allow them to grow and attract new investment.

Gillingham focused on securing federal dollars to support the North End Water Pollution Control Centre as well as the extension of Chief Peguis Trail and the Kenaston projects, which are currently under study but not funded.
