Watch Throne Speech



The Manitoba government is ready to get back to work and build off the significant progress made during its first term in fixing the finances, repairing the services and rebuilding the economy, as outlined in the speech from the throne, delivered today by the administrator, Chief Justice Richard Chartier.

“Manitobans have overwhelmingly endorsed our renewed mandate to move Manitoba forward with greater security, opportunity and prosperity,” Premier Brian Pallister said.  “Our team is dedicated to keeping our promises, and is ready to get back to work and build off the significant progress made.”

The speech highlighted key government commitments including:
•    completing necessary legislative requirements in order to fully implement the measures outlined in Budget 2019;
•    continuing to work to make Manitoba more economically competitive by reducing regulatory red tape and encouraging innovation;
•    completing the implementation of the New West Partnership Trade Agreement;
•    addressing addictions and public safety issues; and
•    making strategic investments to strengthen front-line health, education and social services.

The premier noted the recently released public accounts show the province’s measured and responsible approach is working to reduce the deficit and ensure long-term fiscal sustainability.  The province also recently announced its 100-Day Action Plan outlining its priorities and ambitious agenda.

“Our work to achieve the goal of making Manitoba Canada’s most improved province officially resumes today as we begin a new legislative session,” said Pallister.
