Description

Please join David Powell, 2019 President of the Manitoba Real Estate Association and Harry DeLeeuw, Chair of REALTOR® Week at the 2019 Manitoba REALTOR® Network Symposium: Building on Success.

Building on Success is a government relations symposium for REALTORS®, hosted by the Manitoba Real Estate Association. The Manitoba REALTOR® Network Symposium will be held at the RBC Convention Centre in downtown Winnipeg. This high-calibre summit is the premiere event of Manitoba’s annual REALTOR® Week. With engaging talks, presentations and panels, the half-day program provides a unique, non-partisan platform featuring the ideas and opinions of some of the province’s most knowledgeable political and economic leaders, experts, and media personalities.

This year’s dynamic, insightful and engaging symposium features all three leaders of Manitoba's political parties and The Honourable Brad Wall, former Premier of Saskatchewan. Brad Wall served as the 14th Premier of Saskatchewan from 2007 to 2018 when he retired from public life. During Wall’s time in office, Saskatchewan added over 60,000 new jobs and broke population growth records welcoming over 160,000 new citizens through the decade of growth. His government’s growth plan reformed labour legislation and regulatory environments to ensure fairness, sustainability and economic competitiveness. Wall currently operates his own business and is a special advisor to the national law firm Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt LLP. He is an itinerant columnist for the BOE Report and the National Post and was recently named to the Advisory Board of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.
