"While the five year Canada-Manitoba Economic Partnership Agreement has come to a conclusion, we commit to maintaining our investment in economic engines like the Composites Innovations Centre, the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, and On Screen Manitoba."

"Manitoba boasts more than 2,000 companies working in the arts and culture sector, creating economic activity of more than $1.5 billion a year. From film and video to music, dance and visual arts, to creating the latest video games and web apps, Manitoba is a hub of creative activity rapidly gaining an international reputation. Creative industries and the performing arts add to the vibrancy of our communities and are integral to revitalizing downtown Winnipeg."
