Kikiwak Inn, The Pas, Manitoba

Presented by:
University College of the North, Manitoba Chamber of Commerce and Look North


Linkages: Northern Manitoba and the World Conference is focused on initiating creative, critical thinking and collaborative conversations about northern economic development and the future. Today we are faced with an economy challenged by geopolitical disruption, a global pandemic and international turmoil. How does this impact Northern Manitoba? What is required of our governments, workforce, and communities to emerge?

Linkages: Northern Manitoba and the World Conference will begin to foster these conversations to create new paradigms, new goals and opportunities for northern people.

Objectives and Outcomes

Assess the current northern economic situation

Describe the effects geopolitics has on Northern Manitoba

Understand the importance of reconciliation for the economy

Identify strategies for growth and regional prosperity


Peter Zeihan is a geopolitical strategist, which is a fancy way of saying he helps people understand how the world works. Peter combines an expert understanding of demography, economics, energy, politics, technology, and security to help clients best prepare for an uncertain future.
Over the course of his career, Peter has worked for the US State Department in Australia, the DC think tank community, and helped develop the analytical models for Stratfor, one of the world’s premier private intelligence companies. Peter founded his own firm — Zeihan on Geopolitics — in 2012 in order to provide a select group of clients with direct, custom analytical products. Today those clients represent a vast array of sectors including energy majors, financial institutions, business associations, agricultural interests, universities and the U.S. military.
With a keen eye toward what will drive tomorrow’s headlines, his irreverent approach transforms topics that are normally dense and heavy into accessible, relevant takeaways for audiences of all types.
Peter is a critically-acclaimed author whose first two books — The Accidental Superpower and The Absent Superpower — have been recommended by Mitt Romney, Fareed Zakaria and Ian Bremmer. His latest third title, Disunited Nations: The Scramble for Power in an Ungoverned World became available in March 2020.
Peter’s fourth book, The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization, becomes available in June 2022.
