Ukrainian bureaucrats are in town to see how Winnipeg’s economic development projects can be adapted in their home country.
City of Winnipeg employees will take the delegation on a tour of the Chief Peguis Extension and downtown developments, including Red River College’s Union Bank Tower, Monday and Tuesday.
“It’s an honour to have Winnipeg selected as one of the Canadian cities to participate in this initiative,” Mayor Sam Katz said in a release.
