WELCOME TO CONVENTION 2023
The strength of the Manitoba NDP has always been found in our membership: we are driven by our members’ collective wisdom, energy and desire for a more just, cooperative society and a sustainable future. In this time of global uncertainty and poor political leadership, our message of economic and social justice is more relevant than ever. This October, New Democrats from across Manitoba will come together to debate policy resolutions and lay the course for winning government in the next election.
The Manitoba NDP is at its core a grassroots, democratic movement and nowhere is this more evident than at our annual Conventions. As a Party we want our Conventions to reflect the diversity of our Province, and this means building our grassroots membership into all communities, cultures, and ways of being. We need your help as our activists and organizers to forge lasting, local connections and we must take the time to get this right.
Convention 2022 will be held in-person at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination will be required by all delegates, and additional protocols will be in place to ensure the safety of delegates. All delegates are strong encouraged to attend Convention in-person if possible, however limited online access will be made available to delegates who are unable to attend in person due to health considerations. Please note that while every effort will be made to ensure the participation of online delegates, there are technical and logistical barriers inherent to online participation. Be advised that, due to the successful implementation of several the new Convention practices adopted for Convention 2021, Convention 2022 will again feature the pre Convention resolution panels for prioritization, the round-robin resolution debate order, and the modified rules for debate order. Any additional changes required to facilitate Convention 2022 will be brough to Provincial Council in September 2022 for consideration.
