Winnipeg is home to one of the best economies in the country, according to a new report. The Conference Board of Canada’s Metropolitan Outlook: Autumn 2015 named Winnipeg one of the country’s top metropolitan economic performers in 2015. Real gross domestic product is forecast to rise 2.6 per cent.
