Winnipeg is the capital city of the Manitoba region of Canada, and its first-class railway links to the United States of America and the rest of Canada make it a major regional transport and shipping centre. The city itself is economically prosperous, boasting, according to the Conference Board of Canada, a GDP growth of 2.9%, which makes it the third fastest growing city in Canada today. This financial strength is based on an economy that is diverse, taking in finance, retail, tourism and manufacturing amongst other things. Those willing to take advantage of this economic vibrancy by shipping to Winnipeg will be relieved to hear that, in 2006, the accountants KPMG declared that Winnipeg was one of the least expensive places in Canada to do business.
