The Prairies Property Forecast 2020, Canadian Real Estate Magazine
“Manitoba leads the country in the growth of private-sector capital spending and US Exports…. It’s important to keep in mind that the province’s location smack-dab in the middle of North America makes it an attractive location for large-scale businesses involved in manufacturing, processing and transportation, three of the pillars of the provincial economy. The ease with which such companies can find suitable workers and get their products to market at a fair price has been invaluable for small cities like Steinbach and Brandon, which continue to attract new residents at rates well above the national average. (Brandon’s population grew 5.9% over the last census period, Steinbach’s by 17%.) The province added 5,200 new jobs in August alone.
