Skilled, Available & Affordable Labour

Manitoba has one of the most cost-competitive, skilled, stable and productive labour forces in Canada. The Province is an attractive destination for new immigrants to the country, which helps address skill and worker shortages and adds diversity to the labour force.

CentrePort Canada works in partnership with Manitoba’s universities and colleges, including the University of Manitoba’s Transport Institute, the University of Winnipeg, Manitoba Institute of Trades & Technology and Red River College

Red River College offers transportation, logistics and industry-related training at its two campuses located within CentrePort Canada, including its aerospace training facility, while Manitoba Institute of Trades & Technology offers a variety of labour-focused programs that support major industries at CentrePort.

Wages in Manitoba are the lowest in Western Canada and are extremely competitive with many major centres in the North American midwest.
