Winnipeg Named One of Canada’s Best Investment Locations for 2018

When you think of business investment in Canada, it is hard not to immediately think of Toronto, Canada’s largest city and financial centre or large metropolitan areas like Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary or Ottawa.

According to U.S.-based Site Selection Magazine's 2018 Canada's Best Locations listing, Winnipeg, Manitoba joins the elite as one of nine Canadian cities or regions chosen by the magazine as a strong choice for investment.  According to the magazine, the recognition is based on "private-sector facility investment and job creation performance, considered on a cumulative and per-capita basis based on qualified project data from Conway Analytics' Conway Projects Database.”

Recent major investments in both communications and gaming technologies, as well as business and investment support programs launched by Winnipeg’s economic development agency, helped the central Canadian city of over 700,000 people win this coveted recognition.  Winnipeg remains one of Canada’s most affordable large cities and possesses one of the most diversified economies among Canada’s cities.  Major employment sectors include aerospace, finance and insurance, transportation, agri-business, information technology, furniture and apparel industries.
