Conversation, Connection, Capacity: Winnipeg’s Collaborative Environment

Formally and informally, Winnipeg is a truly connected city where deals get done. Business, government and academic circles work very closely together to benefit employers and employees alike. As part of its mandate as the city’s lead economic development agency, EDW works with dozens of public- and private-sector entities—many of which are noted below—to ensure site selectors, investors and business owners get accurate information.
