Minister's Message

Welcome

As Manitoba's Minister of Finance, I am proud to lead a team of professionals who continue to work together to ensure our province achieves the stable financial status and positive outlook that will benefit all Manitobans, present and future.

Through public consultations and other extensive research, our government is making good progress in reducing provincial debt, while also charting a course for further financial recovery, improved services and economic prosperity.

Along with responsibility for the provincial civil service, the department has already introduced several value-for-money initiatives that will help us make the most of our province's investments, particularly in such key areas as infrastructure and public service transformation.  We are also working to reduce red tape to help entrepreneurs more easily launch, develop and grow their business concepts, right here at home.

As you navigate these pages, you will find plenty of information and referrals that will not only help you, but also give you better insight into the province's financial plans going forward. Thank you for your interest in Manitoba Finance.

Honourable Scott Fielding
Minister of Finance
