B2B Manitoba Helping Businesses Re-Open

North Forge has partnered with the Manitoba government, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, and the Manitoba and Winnipeg Chambers of Commerce to launch B2B Manitoba. 

Building off the success of HelpNextDoorMB, B2B Manitoba is an online marketplace designed to connect businesses with suppliers of non-medical grade PPE and other COVID-19 related products.

“We have heard what our business community needs in order to stay safe as Manitoba re-opens,” says Joelle Foster, CEO of North Forge. “We are proud to deliver another made-in Manitoba solution. The solution is innovating, and innovative is what North Forge does best!”

North Forge was commissioned by the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, after receiving a $422,000 grant from the provincial government, to develop and launch the online marketplace. 

“Our government has heard from the business community that they need help to access supplies needed to enable them to open and operate safely during the pandemic,” said Pallister in the official government press release. “We are proud to join forces with our trusted partners in the business and technology community to launch B2B Manitoba, a tool that will connect businesses with suppliers.”

In addition to assisting businesses during the re-opening phase, B2B Manitoba will support those critical businesses that never closed with restocking needed supplies and will help manufacturers who have retooled their current operations to produce PPE and are looking for ways to access a new customer base.

“In times of need, Manitobans always face the storm together,” said Pallister. “I want to thank our partners, our business community and all Manitobans for everything they are doing and continue to do as we fight COVID-19 and work to restore safe services. Because of our collective efforts, we will emerge from this pandemic strong and united.”
