FROM THE CHAIR

Welcome to the Business Council of Manitoba.

I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as chair of the Business Council of Manitoba following other successful and accomplished chairs. Since our founding in 1998 our members, the CEOs of Manitoba is leading businesses, have contributed to making Manitoba a stronger province.

The Council, now in its third decade, will continue to fulfill its mandate to speak out on major policy issues and to advance non-partisan advice, fresh ideas, and policy positions on matters of importance to our members and our province.  On a regular basis we meet with the most senior leaders in all levels of government to lead discussions on innovative solutions to make Manitoba an even better province.

Members of the Business Council believe that it is the investments they and others in the private sector make that will create sustainable long-term growth, jobs, and prosperity all Manitobans seek. We know success is achieved by working in partnership with governments on the public investments that support economic growth, and just as importantly to improve the quality of life we enjoy in Manitoba.

As a Council we recognize that our office is located on Treaty One lands, the original territories of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Lakota, Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Metis Nation and wish to recognize and honour all Treaties.  The Business Council is proud of the many relationships it has formed, and we dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

The Business Council is dedicated to making Manitoba a better place to live, work and invest.
