WINNIPEG, MB, Nov. 10, 2022 /CNW/ - Investing in Canadians, means investing in a future that benefits everyone. The Government of Canada continues to work with local businesses and other partners to create good jobs and grow an economy that will make Canada more sustainable and prosperous for generations to come.

In the recent 2022 Fall Economic Statement, the Government of Canada outlined its plan to continue growing the economy and to be there for Canadians. To help families cope with increasing costs, the federal government is delivering targeted support to Canadians who need it the most and build an economy that works for everyone.

Today, while visiting Bison Books in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Minister Dan Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan highlighted how the government's plan will help Manitobans. He also announced a $2.5 million federal investment to the Downtown Winnipeg Business Improvement Zone for the Building Business Program, through the Jobs and Growth Fund. This program, in collaboration with numerous downtown partners, will help businesses expand and thrive in downtown Winnipeg, supporting growth and recovery, which are at the heart of the Fall Economic Statement.

Measures proposed and highlighted in the 2022 Fall Economic Statement include:


"Our government knows that life is becoming too expensive, and we're doubling down on our efforts to make it more affordable and grow the economy, creating good jobs that Canadians can count on. Our government's support for the Building Business Program will have a positive impact on economic growth and make downtown Winnipeg an even better destination for businesses to thrive and people to gather." 
              - The Honourable Dan Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan

Recovery downtown takes collaboration, leadership and support from key partners and all levels of government. This investment from PrairiesCan in the Building Business Program will fill vacant storefronts and help entrepreneurs create new experiences for people who live, work and visit downtown, and will support existing businesses grow the downtown economy.
