Memorandum of Understanding on economic corridors with Alberta and Saskatchewan

The Manitoba government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the governments of Saskatchewan and Alberta to advance economic corridors. The intent of the MOU is to improve multi-modal transport infrastructure and services linking prairie economic and trade nodes to world markets. The MOU will promote co-operation on matters such as improving joint highway planning, efficiency measures supporting trade, joint advocacy on federal regulatory and funding issues impacting prairie transportation-based trade, and assessing private-sector investments and Indigenous partnerships in improving or developing new economic corridors. Advancing Indigenous economic reconciliation is a key informing principle of the MOU and the co-operative prairie efforts.
