Promise & Potential
A Fully-Costed Economic Development Platform
A re-elected PC government will unlock opportunities ahead and make Manitoba a ‘have’ province powered by 100,000 new jobs.
Manitoba is the best place to start and raise your family, and the best place to start and grow your business in Canada. Your taxes will be lower, your bank account will be larger, your kids won’t be wanting to move away, and Manitoba’s growing economy will be the most powerful in the country.
Phasing Out the Payroll Tax
Providing stable, predictable, and long-term tax relief for Manitoba businesses by phasing out the payroll tax over eight years, and 50% over four, in order to stay competitive with other Canadian provinces and U.S. states competing for investment.
Rising to the challenge of filling 100,000 jobs in Manitoba over the next five years with a $16-million skills training and recruitment fund, leveraging private sector investment and developing initiatives for micro-credentialing, new training seats, and expanding youth apprenticeships and on-the-job training.
Fighting for Manitoba Farmers
Ensuring producers prosper with permanent Crown land rent reductions, protecting exports from labour disruption, and increasing funding for Veterinary Service Districts and the Winnipeg Humane Society One Health Program.
Powering New Industries
Leveraging Manitoba’s affordable, clean energy to attract and power new industries entering the provincial economy, including aquaculture, biofuels, critical minerals, solar glass manufacturing, and carbon sequestration, as well as strengthening emerging industries like film and television with expanded tax incentives.
Skip the PST
Supporting the ongoing recovery of the hospitality sector by eliminating the PST from the sale of restaurant meals, and encouraging the greening of Manitoba communities by removing the PST from the sale of trees and flowers.
