Consider Canada City Alliance

Eleven economic development agencies from Canada’s large cities—including Economic Development Winnipeg—work together as the Consider Canada City Alliance to promote Canada as an ideal destination for global trade and investment.

As a united front, Canada’s large cities—Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Québec City, Winnipeg, Waterloo Region, London, Halifax and Saskatoon—help international companies determine the best strategies for business expansion and continually improve Canada’s ability to attract new investment and trade opportunities. 

These large cities represent 52.5 per cent of Canada's population, 56.8 per cent of its GDP and 63.8 per cent of GDP growth in Canada between 2010 and 2015.
