Economic Development: Ward Priorities

Economic Development

The South Winnipeg-St. Norbert Ward is one of the fastest growing communities in Winnipeg! We have shops and businesses all along the “Pembina Strip” and St. Mary’s Road which contribute to our economy and provide us with goods and services on our doorstep. It is a priority of mine to work with these businesses to ensure their economic vitality and ability to remain in our community and flourish.
