Over the past 5 years, Tradebank has experienced tremendous growth. We have launched a number of new cities including Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton & Moose Jaw in the west along with Ottawa, London, York, Barrie & Brantford in the east. Manitoba has remained untouched, that is until now!

A few months ago, Glen was looking for ways to bring even more value to his members and he came across the idea of organized barter. While doing research, he noticed that Tradebank was expanding across Canada and had not yet entered the Manitoba market. After a lot of consideration from both sides, we are pleased to announce that Glen has purchased the franchise for Tradebank Manitoba.
"We couldn't be happier with our Winnipeg team! Glen, Jack and Mike bring with them years of experience growing many businesses and we know that they will do a fabulous job building Tradebank and representing our brand in a professional manner. By leveraging their existing relationships in the marketplace, we expect that Tradebank Winnipeg will be our fastest start-up in company history"
-John Porter, President/CEO Tradebank Inc.
"After spending time with Glen and his team training them on various aspects of managing the barter business, I'm very excited about how Tradebank will grow here in Manitoba! Under Glen's local leadership and our national support, we know that they will experience amazing growth and will quickly become one of our top regions"
-Gavin Duncan, VP Operations, Tradebank Inc.
"I'm truly honoured to be chosen as Tradebank's newest franchisee! I did a lot of research into the barter business and I know that I've made the best choice for my TEN members and all Manitoba businesses by aligning myself with such a professional organization. Although I have years of experience operating many successful businesses, both John, Gavin and the rest of their corporate support team bring a lot of knowledge to the table which will help us build the best barter company in the area. With 14 other growing Tradebank regions, we have set ourselves up for rapid growth and long-term success. We are excited to be a part of Canada's Barter System and we look forward to helping businesses across Manitoba build a better bottom line"
