Western Canada’s first pure outlet centre is the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver, which opened in the summer of 2015. Ivanhoé Cambridge also operates two hybrid outlet centres (mix of full-price and outlet stores) in Western Canada — CrossIron Mills outside of Calgary, and Tsawwassen Mills outside of Vancouver. 

The Winnipeg project also created a lot of jobs. Overall, more than 1,300 full- and part-time retail jobs and 400 construction related jobs will have been created by the project.

“Job creation is the backbone of every economy and we are proud that the significant investment we and our partners have made in Winnipeg has translated into thousands of construction and retail employment opportunities for its residents,” commented Blair Forster, President, Forster Projects.
