CCEDNet Manitoba's Public Policy Road Map

You are here

This is CCEDNet Manitoba's Public Policy Road Map for Manitoba’s Social, Economic, and Environmental Future

Over the past two years, members have shared that our movement requires an organized articulation of our collective vision for Manitoba’s future. 

These are the priorities of our Network - reimagined as a Public Policy Road Map for Manitoba’s Social, Economic, and Environmental Future. This Road Map guides our advocacy, organizing, and collective voice every day of the year.

It is our collective belief that if Manitoba follows this Road Map rooted in a Community Economic Development vision, our social, economic, and environmental future will be stronger and our communities will be more inclusive, democratic, and sustainable.

When taken all together, the recommendations proposed in this document, while not exhaustive, represent solutions to some of Manitoba’s most challenging, interconnected issues.

As members know, our public policy mandate is the result of a democratic decision-making process. Every year, members work together to create a pragmatic, wide-ranging and solutions-focused set of public policy resolutions. This is the result.

Our Collective Vision is: Sustainable and inclusive communities directing their own social, economic and environmental futures.

Together, we're focused on:

  • Ending Poverty
  • Local & Fair Economies
  • Tackling Climate Change
  • Sustainable Community-Led Development
  • Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access
  • Democracy & Directing our Own Future
