November 17, 2015

The Canadian CED Network – Manitoba (CCEDNet – Manitoba) welcomes the Government of Manitoba’s Speech from the Throne, delivered November 16, 2015. This indication of government priorities for the final session of the 40th Legislature commits to supporting multiple areas of work for CCEDNet – Manitoba members, including:

We are pleased with these initiatives that will support the inclusive and sustainable communities that our membership works for every day.

There is always more to do, and we hope there may also be support for CCEDNet – Manitoba member priorities that were not mentioned in the Throne Speech like a commitment to develop a provincial food policy council, increasing supports for co-operative housing development, and adoption of a living wage policy.
