Membership


Membership to the Business Council of Manitoba is by invitation only. Members must be Chief Executive Officers of important companies, large, medium sized and smaller enterprises, with their head offices in this province.

We have invited only those business leaders who have made commitments, both business and personal, to the health and prosperity of the Manitoba community. Our member companies generate in excess of $35 billion of revenue annually, employ more than 55,000 Manitobans and pay tens of millions of dollars a year in taxation.

MEMBERSHIP ADVANTAGES:

The Council has the unique power to convene leaders from across sectors at the President and CEO level to develop or consult on policies affecting Manitoba.

The Council leverages this ability to influence decisions that shape of Province now and into the future.

The Council is proactively engaged by various levels of government to input on issues affecting the business environment and community:

  • This consists of direct face to face engagement as well as the provision of fact-based policy direction and advice.
  • Members are engaged through committee participation, e-consultation, and direct one-one access. 
  • Members are afforded direct access to decision makers and processes such as the speech from the throne, budgets, regulatory reforms, and preferred standing on government consultations. Members are engaged through committee participation, e-consultation, and direct one-one access.
