Videos about voting in Winnipeg

Along with other community organizations, we sent a survey to ask Winnipeg City Council candidates in the upcoming Winnipeg City Council election to provide their position on an Access Without Fear policy. Find out which of your candidates took the time to complete the survey and their views.

 

An Access Without Fear policy ensures that all residents, including undocumented migrants, have access to all city services regardless of their immigration status.

Why Does It Matter?

  • About 25% of Winnipeg's population are newcomers.

  • If you vote, you will have a say in how your kids schools are run

  • If you vote, you will have a say in the price of bus tickets

  • If you vote, you will have a say in small business taxes

  • If you vote, you will have a say in policing in Winnipeg

  • If you don’t vote, it’s not a democracy!
