Why does it Matter?

What to Know?

Approximately 25% of Winnipeg’s population comprises newcomers, projected to reach 41% by 2041. Voting empowers citizens to influence education, transportation costs, small business taxes, and policing, essential aspects of city life.

Non-participation threatens the democratic process.

Mark your calendar for the Manitoba General Election on October 3, 2023. With only 61% turnout last time, every vote counts. Immigrant and refugee voices matter – their participation is often low, despite a projected 2 in 5 population by 2041.

Shape our future; exercise your right to vote!
