On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) hosted our annual Ministers’ Dinner – our premier members-only event. This sold-out evening allowed MCC members to engage directly with our provincial government, fostering stronger ties between our business community and key government decision-makers.

Attendees heard from the Honourable Uzoma Asagwara, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, Seniors & Long-term Care who shared their vision for the province, the significance of collaboration with the business community, and the upcoming initiatives aimed at enhancing Manitoba’s health and social care sectors. Once dessert was done, the MCC made a donation to the YMCA/YWCA of Winnipeg Strong Kids Campaign, demonstrating our commitment to community support and development.
