Manitoba's Path to Progressing Together laid out in Provincial Speech from the Throne

When Canadians were tuned into the Upper Chamber as Governor General Mary Simon was delivering her first Speech from the Throne, Manitoba was doing the same task one province away.

Manitoba's Premier Heather Stefanson government unveiled her governments agenda, ‘Path to Progressing Together’, which focuses on working together to build a stronger, healthier and more inclusive province.

Delivered by the Lt.-Gov. Janice C. Filmon at the opening of the fourth session of the 42nd legislature, the Manitoba speech from the throne set out the new premier’s vision for a strong economic and social recovery, with a focus on the health and well-being of all Manitobans.

"We are committed to working side by side with all Manitobans in the spirit of collaboration, co-operation and reconciliation,” said the premier stated.

"As we continue to address the challenges posed by COVID-19, we are also focused on creating a stronger, more sustainable health-care system, providing greater supports for families, seniors and vulnerable Manitobans, improving education and training opportunities, and laying the ground work to foster investment, job creation and economic growth," she added.
