February 28, 2014 – Ontario and Manitoba formally agreed today to work together to advance energy innovation, support clean, renewable power and promote economic development in both provinces.

“Innovation and cooperation is the key to a prosperous and sustainable economy. Working together with Ontario to develop new conservation technologies, green jobs and reliable energy resources is the smart way forward for our provinces and Canada as a whole,” said Greg Selinger, Premier of Manitoba.

“I know that, together, we will be able to strengthen our economies and build a brighter future for everyone,” said Wynne.
