ABOUT MANITOBA BUSINESS MATTERS

As the backbone of the Manitoba economy, our small businesses must remain agile and proactive as the COVID-19 situation unfolds. Having timely access to policy changes, programs, expert insights and news as quickly as possible is critical—and that’s where Manitoba Business Matters can help.

Together with Western Economic Diversification Canada, the Province of Manitoba, and pillars of the Manitoba business community, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce developed “Business Is Unusual – A Coronavirus Survival Guide for Manitoba Business” and launched the Manitoba Business Matters initiative.

Throughout the next year we’ll provide expert insights, tools, and resources so that our business community, province, country, and economy emerge stronger.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at info@mbchamber.mb.ca or directly to any one of our valued partners for support during these challenging times.

We are in this together.
