About AMSC

The Alliance of Manitoba Sector Councils (AMSC)

AMSC is an industry section organization, funded by the Province of Manitoba, which focuses on human resources development for small, medium and large organizations and their current and future employees. AMSC promotes cooperation, coordination and collaboration amongst its members to increase effectives by initiating and supporting joint initiatives in a range of areas including: training of existing workers, training of new hires, career awareness, educational infrastructure development, integration of skilled immigrants; building human resource capacity; and research.
To enable collaboration among the Manitoba Sector Councils Network and other Stakeholders
Manitoba’s Workforce is Diverse, Skilled and Adaptable
We believe:

  • In a shared vision of the future potential of our workforce
  • In cross-sectoral collaboration and partnerships
  • In innovation and creativity
  • In transparency and accountability
  1. Cross-sectoral labour market research and program and policy development
  2. The creation and delivery of cross-sector skills development learning, projects and other initiatives
  3. Strengthening and integrating AMSC’s network
  4. Supporting the growth and development of industry sectors in Manitoba

Our People Make The Difference

Manitoba has many business advantages: rich resources, a strategic mid-continental location, and a stable and diversified economy. But it’s our people who make the difference.

We Bring Them Together

At AMSC, Manitobans exchange ideas and information, hold workshops and courses, and create collaborative programs to encourage diversity, develop workplace skills and promote business leadership.

We Create Opportunity For Our Children

By strengthening our workforce and developing our industries, we help our members drive economic growth and social development, here at home and on the global stage. We work toward a future where our children can aspire and achieve, right here in Manitoba, in whatever career they choose—rocket scientist or medical researcher, organic farmer or filmmaker, web designer or dam builder.

Together We Are Building Manitoba

At the centre of all these diverse sectors, AMSC is a hub of inspiration, energy and action. More than anything, it’s a hub of people. AMSC members and partners are committed in supporting businesses and industry in this province.
