Manitoba Votes 2019: CCEDNet's Provincial Election Guide

You are here

Manitoba Votes 2019On September 10, 2019, Manitobans will go to the polls to elect our provincial government. The province is responsible for so many important aspects of our community's futures - local economic and enterprise development, community development, housing, social services and addressing poverty, and taking care of our environment and earth. We know that our shared movement for Community Economic Development - with local & fair local economies, no poverty, and more sustainable communities - has the solutions to tackle some of our province's toughest social, economic, and environmental challenges. 

This resource page is both to help make CED a priority this election, and to keep the community informed about developments throughout the campaign.

Public Policy Road Map for Manitoba’s Sustainable & Inclusive Social, Economic, and Environmental Future

Every year, members of the Canadian CED Network - Manitoba come together to set out collective public policy goals. 

This year, we are excited to unveil our new policy package. We believe our vision - "Sustainable and Inclusive Communities directing their own Social, Economic, and Environmental Futures" and our public policy mandate should be considered and adopted by all political parties and candidates. 

Our Road Map offers solutions to some of Manitoba's most challenging social, economic, and environmental issues. 

Together, we're focused on:

  • Ending Poverty
  • Local & Fair Economies
  • Tackling Climate Change
  • Sustainable Community-Led Development
  • Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access
  • Democracy & Directing our Own Future

Watch for the unveiling of our new CCEDNet Manitoba Public Policy Road Map in the coming weeks!
