Economic Development Tours

The mission of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce is to champion sustainable economic growth leading to greater prosperity for business and communities in Manitoba.

In an effort to address this, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce is launching an initiative to provide business leaders with a greater understanding of the potential economic opportunities that exist in communities throughout Manitoba. This initiative – called economic development tours will give selected Manitoba communities an opportunity to showcase their local value proposition to a broader audience with the goal of expanding their local economy. In addition, the tours will be a catalyst to begin the process of creating business relationships that may not otherwise exist.

The two-day economic development tours will be chock-full of opportunities to network with key decision makers, tour key businesses, and learn more about future prospects.

Interested individuals must download and complete an Expression of Interest Form below and submit to Shyanne Mattey by email at or by fax to 204-948-0110. Completing the form does not guarantee participation. Interested individuals will be notified of their participation following review of their completed form.
