Brandon’s diverse and reliable workforce provides companies with the talent they need to develop and produce a wide range of products. This diverse business economy also creates overlapping opportunities for companies to supply or source goods and services across multiple sectors of industry.

 

The City of Brandon and the surrounding rural areas differ considerably in employment structure by industry. Brandon's economy is more diversified in that the regionally dominant primary industry is a small component, while the service functions associated with a wholesale-retail trade centre are dominant. Brandon also has an extensive business, education, finance and administrative sector, reflecting its role as Manitoba's second largest city.
