The past decade has given rise to dramatic shifts within the local advanced manufacturing ecosystem, and Economic Development Winnipeg (EDW) has been challenged to better understand the new technologies and catalysts moving the sector forward. To capitalize on Winnipeg’s existing and potential advantages related to advanced manufacturing, a broader appreciation was needed regarding the global impact of technology and innovation on the sector to ensure its continuing competitiveness.
2017 1st Quarter Report on Progress

In early May, Economic Development Winnipeg (EDW) hosted its annual general meeting to a packed room at the Richardson Conference Centre. In addressing attendees, I emphasized two central themes that have motivated me during my first year as EDW’s president and CEO: first, collaborating more effectively with the municipal and provincial governments, which is essential in a province the size of Manitoba; and second, becoming the owners of Winnipeg’s value proposition and the experts at collecting, assessing and sharing applicable data with stakeholders. These are not mutually exclusive pursuits. EDW’s ability to effect change depends on the successful application of these two goals in the years ahead.
