Thompson 2020 is a project initiative launched to mitigate the effects downsizing in Thompson’s mining sector through collaboration with government, employers, stakeholders and rights holders, and the community as a whole. Through these partnerships and initiatives under the project, Thompson 2020 will lay the foundation for a diverse and sustainable northern Manitoban economy.
Thompson 2020 will identify priority components to be executed prior to Vale’s target for workforce reductions in 2018. These priority tasks will be executed based on a concrete project structure based on clearly defined milestones, developed with input from partners, stakeholders and rights holders, and reported publicly on a regular basis.
Thompson 2020 has now ended, and the project's Economic Development Coordinator now continues their work under the City of Thompson. You can find the project's final overview and report at the link below.Thompson 2020 Final Project Report
