NDP Convention Delegates

Manitoba NDP Conventions see delegates from across the province come together to set Party policy, share ideas, and help build our Party.  Each delegate must be an individual member in good standing of the Party for a minimum of 90 days prior to that convention.  The membership deadline for Convention 2020 is January 18, 2020.

There are four different types of delegates that come to Manitoba NDP Convention: automatic, constituency, affiliate, and Manitoba Young New Democrats (MYND).   Once a delegate is selected, or if they are an automatic delegate, they can register for convention.  More information about registration and fees can be found here
