What is OurWinnipeg?
OurWinnipeg is the City of Winnipeg's 25-year plan for strategic growth and development. It provides a vision and policies that influence the delivery of City services, how residents get around the city, and how the city grows.
What did the review process accomplish?
The review process provided an opportunity to revisit the vision and policies articulated in OurWinnipeg to ensure we are realizing our city's collective vision and responding to community needs.
When will the review's findings be presented?
It is anticipated that an updated plan will be presented to Council for its consideration in the fall of 2020.
What are the key updates/differences in the 2020 version of OurWinnipeg? What has changed since 2011?
Updated policy content in the new OurWinnipeg draft consists of 21 objectives and 131 policy statements that reflect consistency with previous policy direction, but contain new emphasis or refined policy intent in the following areas:
  • Decision-making criteria for proactive solutions
  • Social, environmental and economic impact of municipal investments
  • Collective impact for community benefit
  • Removing systemic barriers
  • Climate targets and action
  • Social determinants of health and health equity
  • Healthy built environments
  • Poverty reduction, innovation and green solutions as economic drivers
What happened to the four direction strategies adopted in 2011?
These strategies were included as high level policy in both OurWinnipeg 2045 and Complete Communities Direction Strategy 2.0 updates.
How does Complete Communities Direction Strategy fit with the OurWinnipeg review?
Complete Communities is the OurWinnipeg companion document dealing with future land use. It is a Council-adopted bylaw that contains policy direction regarding the city's physical development moving forward.
How is the public involved in the review process?
Public engagement activities were held at the beginning of the review, which began in 2016. As well, stakeholders were involved throughout the review. An OurWinnipeg Community Advisory Committee made up of Winnipeg residents has provided advice about community-based issues, public engagement activities, city-wide priorities, and other related issues regularly.

The drafts of OurWinnipeg 2045 and the Complete Communities Direction Strategy 2.0 are now open for public feedback, along with the Infill Strategy's Small-Scale Residential Development Guidelines for Mature Communities.

Learn about what is being proposed in each of these documents and share your feedback now.

Once approved, OurWinnipeg implementation through a Strategic Priorities Action Plan will benefit from ongoing community participation and alignment of both City and community resources.
Who is responsible for approving the new plan?
The formal plan approval process for OurWinnipeg requires a public hearing at the Executive Policy Committee, as well as approval from both City Council and the Province of Manitoba.
Where can I read the plan in its entirety?
The updated OurWinnipeg 2045 draft is available on the following website.
Last update: June 22, 2020
