Established in 1931, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce represents the province's largest and most diverse business lobby, with member chambers in every region from Hudson Bay to the U.S., Saskatchewan and Ontario borders. The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, which was incorporated as the Winnipeg Board of Trade on March 8, 1873 — several months before Winnipeg was incorporated as a city — is the voice of business in the community. It helps shape public policy and embraces bold new innovations that give Manitoba businesses a competitive edge. Together, our 'pegBiz partners help foster solid leadership in the public, private and non-profit sectors, from small businesses to the arts and charitable organizations. Our province is rich in resources, but in our debut issue, we focus on Winnipeg's most valuable asset — its human resources.
