WINNIPEG — CentreVenture Development Corporation has signed a memorandum of collaboration with its counterpart organization, Renaissance Brandon.
The agreement will allow both parties to work together to improve economic, social and environment outcomes for both city cores.
“There are great things happening in downtown Brandon and Renaissance Brandon is making a real positive difference in that community,” said Angela Mathieson, president and CEO of CentreVenture. “By working together, and sharing our experiences, we can achieve even more for our respective downtowns.”
Both organizations will share knowledge, due diligence approaches, methodologies, market information, and best practices in downtown programming. The parties also agree to jointly support and advocate for legislative and regulatory improvements to aid in the revitalization of heritage and underutilized downtown properties.
“This formal collaboration is a first for our organization,” said Elisabeth Saftiuk, executive director of Renaissance Brandon. “CentreVenture is a model organization for downtown revitalization, an envy of many North American cities. By working together we are trying to achieve even more made-in-Manitoba successes.”
