    - enhance the province’s transportation mobility and connectivity;
    - ensure safety and reliability across the highway network;
    - enable industry expansion that leverages Manitoba’s diverse economy; and
    - build climate resiliency;
  • the expansion of CentrePort Canada, which is North America’s largest tri-modal inland port and foreign trade zone;
  • upgrades to the rail line to Churchill, which will improve service to isolated communities; and
  • the proposed Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin Outlet Channels Project, which represents a significant step in Manitoba’s long-term climate resiliency and flood mitigation plan, to provide improved flood protection for Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin.
