In 1961, the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation merged with the Canadian Labour Congress to create the New Democratic Party of Canada. The Manitoba New Democratic Party was founded later that year at a convention held at The Fort Garry Hotel. This spring, we are returning to The Fort Garry Hotel to hold Convention 2020 from April 17 – 19.
The strength of the Manitoba NDP has always been found in our membership. From the founding Convention 59 years ago to this past election, we have been driven by our members’ collective wisdom, energy and desire for a more just, cooperative society and a sustainable future.
The Manitoba NDP is at its core a grassroots, democratic movement. Nowhere is this more evident than at our annual Conventions. This April, New Democrats from across Manitoba will gather together to debate policy resolutions, hold training sessions, and lay a course for government in the next election.
