NDP Convention Resolutions


One of the primary activities at Convention is delegates debating and voting on policy resolutions.  Resolutions are how proposals and ideas are transformed into position statements and calls to action for the Party.

Constituency Association, Affiliates, Party Committees, MYND, and Provincial Executive can all propose resolutions for Convention.  Resolutions from Constituency Associations and MYND must be debated and passed at a local membership meeting, while affiliates, Committees and Executive must pass them at a regular meeting.

Resolutions must be received by Provincial Office by Tuesday, December 15, 2020 to be considered by the Convention Resolutions Committee for ConventionIt is preferred that Resolutions be submitted electronically via email to [email protected]

Draft, unedited resolutions prepared for Convention 2020 have been distributed to all members as part of the AGM process for your consideration.

The Manitoba NDP has adopted a clear language resolution format for its Conventions.  Information on the resolution format can be found here.

Note: All resolutions submitted for consideration will be reviewed by the Convention Resolutions Committee, whose mandate to prioritize resolutions for Convention is set by Council. The format changes to Convention will require changes to the Resolutions Committee’s mandate and how resolutions are prioritized and presented to Convention, including the possibility of resolutions panels prior to Convention. Provincial Council will consider proposed changes at its meeting in November and these decisions will be communicated to delegates and will be made available here.
