Five-Year Plan to Build a Stronger Manitoba
Manitoba’s $5.5 billion Five-Year Plan to Build a Stronger Manitoba matches every dollar raised from the one-cent on the dollar increase in PST and more with new investments in core infrastructure including:
- Roads, Highways & Bridges: More than $3.7 billion will be invested in Manitoba roads, highways and bridges to better connect communities and strengthen trade corridors.
- Flood protection: $320 million will be invested in flood protection around the province to better protect more communities from flooding.
- Municipal infrastructure: More than $1.5 billion will be invested in municipal roads, clean water, active transportation and other municipal infrastructure to help meet the needs of Manitoba’s many growing communities.
An independent analysis of the Five-Year Plan by The Conference Board of Canada shows that these investments will stimulate Manitoba’s economy and create jobs.
The Five-Year Plan is the product of many consultations with municipalities, business and labour leaders and industry associations across Manitoba.
Progress on the Five-Year Plan, as well as its economic impacts, will be independently reviewed and publically reported annually.
