A national leader in ag-tech, Manitoba’s ICT sector surpassed $2 billion in 2019. Industries like finance, energy and ecommerce are increasingly responsible for employment of the province’s ICT workers.



A diverse manufacturing base, mineral resource development, and farming are key drivers of the provincial economy. The province's capital city, Winnipeg, recently recorded the second highest rate of growth in technology employment among Canadian mid-sized cities.

Winnipeg saw its tech workforce grow by about 40% between 2012 and 2017. The city’s community of small and medium-sized ICT companies gave birth to notables such as SkipTheDishes, an app-based food delivery serviced and is the Canadian flagship office for international travel giant Priceline.

Cybersecurity, digital media, fintech, machine learning, AI, and SaaS are entrenched technologies that round out the province’s tech ecosystem.

International tech giants in the province include Ubisoft, Microsoft, and Amazon Web Services.
