The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce is having economic development tours in The Pas and Opaskwayak Cree Nation on April 24th and the 25th.
Chuck Davidson, the president and CEO of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce told Arctic Radio News that this is an initiative that was undertaken by the chambers of commerce last summer and over the course of the next 18 months they will be doing economic development tours of various Northern Manitoba communities.
Since The Pas and OCN are considered to be major communities in Northern Manitoba, the Chambers of Commerce wants to provide an opportunity for business people from Southern Manitoba to visit the area and look at potential business opportunities.
They will also be meeting with local leaders and they will be touring various businesses and places in the area such as UCN, The Sam Waller Museum and Canadian Kraft Paper.
