1 Manitoba International Gateway Strategy Manitoba Infrastructure & Transportation

2 Manitoba International Gateway Strategy (MIGS) Time has never been more of the essence to coordinate our efforts on positioning Manitoba as a trade and transportation gateway of choice. Manitoba was founded on the gateway to the west. MIGS builds on that foundation to be the mid-continent gateway to North America and the World. MIGS is a means to position the province to seize on emerging opportunities from global supply chain trends such as burgeoning polar air routes and heightened container traffic flows from Asia. MIGS is an over arching strategy to provide a coordinated approach to ongoing and emerging initiatives to advance Manitoba as a sustainable transportation and distribution gateway for North American mid-continent global commerce and international travel. To further our strategic multi-modal initiatives, Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation is focusing on the development of key relations with local, regional, national and international partners, with the immediate goal of leveraging federal funding support for MIGS and related strategic infrastructure needs. Ron Lemieux Minister of Infrastructure and Transportation
