On November 17, 2016 the Manitoba Government announced it had joined the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) which came into effect on January 1, 2017. CFIB commends the province for signing the NWPTA and reducing red tape for Manitoba small businesses.
On January 1, 2017, the province started changes allowing for easier movement of goods, services and labour across provincial boundaries. About 40 per cent of Manitoba’s interprovincial exports are to British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, meaning there is huge potential for Manitoba firms to become more competitive in and grow in these markets. The NWPTA offers access to the four province’s eleven million people and a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over $750 billion.
How might the NWPTA help your business?
Manitoba firms can access provincial ministries’ tenders on one site as of January 1, 2017. Opportunities from crown corporations and the MASH sector will be on one site as of January 1, 2019.
