Policies, Procedures and By-Laws

The City of Winnipeg Charter is provincial legislation that requires the City to adopt, by by-law, a development plan that sets out long-term plans and policies respecting its purposes; its physical, social, environmental and economic objectives; sustainable land uses and development; and measures for implementing this plan.

OurWinnipeg, 02-3 Heritage - OurWinnipeg, the City's municipal development plan, provides direction for a sustainable city, and Heritage Conservation is a factor of sustainable growth.

Complete Communities, 13 Heritage Conservation - Complete Communities is one of four Direction Strategies supporting OurWinnipeg. Its primary focus is to describe Winnipeg's physical characteristics and lay out a framework for the city's future physical growth and development by introducing an urban structure. Heritage Conservation is a contributing factor to Winnipeg's urban structure.

The Historical Resources By-law No. 55/2014 identifies all heritage resources and establishes the protections and regulations afforded to these.

Property Standards - If you own a property in the City of Winnipeg, you are required to comply with all City of Winnipeg property standards by-laws. These are available online for your information and review - Vacant Buildings By-law No. 79/2010, Neighbourhood Liveability By-law No. 1/2008, and By-law No. 72/2016.
