Planning for our shared future: Winnipeg’s Priorities for Sustainable Growth

How should Winnipeg develop as we grow towards one million people?

What policies need to be in place to ensure that Winnipeg’s growth and development is socially equitable, and sustainable over time?

How can growth happen in a way that adds value to existing communities, and addresses challenges that communities already face?

These are some of the questions that the City of Winnipeg is attempting to address through two important and related planning initiatives, which include:
OurWinnipeg –The City’s 25-year development plan, which provides a vision, goals, and policies intended to influence leadership and good governance, priority setting, the delivery of City services, how residents get around the city, and decisions about how Winnipeg grows. OurWinnipeg is required by the City of Winnipeg Charter, which requires the City to adopt, by by-law, a development plan that sets out long-term plans and policies.

Complete Communities – Building on the OurWinnipeg policies, Complete Communities is a citywide secondary plan that guides growth, development, and land use in the City.

Information and feedback opportunities for these initiatives are being presented together in order to provide a complete picture of how these planning documents propose to achieve the City’s goals for sustainable growth as the population of Winnipeg continues to climb.

The opportunity to engage online with the City of Winnipeg on these important initiatives will continue until Monday, August 10, 2020. In light of current restrictions on in-person events, virtual events will be held for both projects to present some of the main topics of discussion, and allow for questions to be asked of the project teams at the following times:
