After speaking with local leaders in the community, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce has made the decision to postpone the Economic Development Tour to The Pas and Opaskwayak Cree Nation planned for May 23 & 24. We will continue to work in collaboration with the community to support them as best we can, and when the time is right, we will work to reschedule the tour for the fall.

Why The Pas and OCN? Known as The Gateway to the North, The Pas and OCN is a major transportation hub, connecting southern Manitoba routes with those in the north and serving as a East-West corridor for goods flowing into Saskatewan and Alberta. The region also boasts thriving agricultural, manufacturing, tourism, and educational industries. Expand your business, explore new partnerships, and secure your foothold in the North.

“This economic development tour of Churchill gave us a glimpse of the many opportunities there are with delegates and community members. Not only did we create strong business contacts for expanding our services, we were able to check off one of our ‘Bucket List’ global destinations.”
