The Winnipeg Metropolitan Region has been meeting together since 1999 to: work together to develop a competitive, economically strong Winnipeg Region; build strong civic leadership in the Region and strengthen working relationships; create awareness of Winnipeg Metro Region issues and concerns; and resolve issues.
The Winnipeg Metropolitan Region is committed to a relationship of cooperation founded in communication, mutual understanding, trust and respect. We believe that through collaboration, the Winnipeg Metro Region as a whole can be greater than the sum of its parts, and a model of regional cooperation and planning.
Our partnership provides the opportunity for Winnipeg Region municipalities to discuss and work on issues that cross their respective boundaries. It supports a flexible approach that recognizes that different issues may involve different stakeholders and different regional processes.
The Winnipeg Metropolitan Region is supportive of the many regional and inter-municipal initiatives that currently exist in the Winnipeg Metro Region. It recognizes and supports the autonomy of local government to develop and implement inter-municipal agreements. The organization also recognizes local government autonomy to deal with other governments and stakeholders directly.
The following is the Vision Statement for the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region:
"A safe, healthy, efficient, prosperous and strong Capital Region with a strong Capital City, where the public, governments, and organizations work together cooperatively, enhancing community development opportunities, effectively managing resources, and providing all citizens with a high quality of life."
