The secret of Manitoba’s low business costs is a cost of living that allows Manitobans to live better for less
Costs in Manitoba are some of the most affordable in Canada, with house prices, auto insurance, electricity, post secondary tuition and more all available at costs that are significantly lower than other provinces. High quality public health care is also available free to residents.
In fact, after paying the basic personal costs of taxes, housing, child care, auto insurance and utilities, a family of five earning $75,000 per year is left with approximately $8,554 per year more in Manitoba, than the national average.
Those benefits are felt just as strongly at higher income levels in a province that boasts some of the least expensive executive homes, vacation homes and green fees at tournament-quality golf courses.
