Winnipeg, Canada is at the
exact geographic centre of North America. As such, we enjoy the convenience
of being in the Central Time Zone—two hours ahead of Vancouver, one

From our beginnings in 1976, an attitude of globalism has been one of our constant defining traits. We have always viewed globalism holistically, inclusively, and in terms that go beyond the narrow (and often exploitative) concept of globalization as popular of late—beyond the free flow of goods, services, capital, technology, ideas, information, and labour—to include expanding opportunities for all, more even distribution of wealth, promoting cooperation and understanding, and building respect for both diversity and multiculturalism.
