This annual economic forecast for the province of Manitoba examines the economic outlook for the province, including gross domestic product (GDP), output by industry and labour market conditions.

Document Highlights

  • Manitoba’s real GDP grew by just 1.2 per cent in 2021, pulled down by drought in the agricultural sector and low or no growth in other important industries.
  • A rebound in goods-producing sectors will push real GDP growth to 4.2 per cent in 2022 and 2.9 per cent in 2023.
  • Manitoba’s labour market is red-hot, with the province hitting its lowest-ever unemployment rate in July.
  • Rapid inflation and rising interest rates will cause the consumption of goods to drop, but spending on services will more than make up for the shortfall.
  • Housing starts will keep on increasing this year and remain high over our forecast period, continuing to bring investment to the province.
