The deadline is fast approaching for residents to apply for the Welcoming Winnipeg Committee of Community Members. The committee was created as part of the Welcoming Winnipeg: Reconciling our History Policy.

Following two phases of public engagement, the policy was developed to guide us in making decisions regarding requests to create new, add to or remove/rename historical markers and place names, and resolve the absence of Indigenous perspectives, experiences, and contributions in the stories remembered and commemorated.

“We are excited to now be recruiting for this inaugural Committee of Community Members,” said Rhonda Forgues, Manager of the Indigenous Relations Division.

The final day to submit an application is Monday, July 27, 2020 at 4:30 p.m.

As part of the process for requesting and implementing initiatives to recognize and commemorate various historical people and events, the committee will provide recommendations for final approval by City Council.

Qualifications for committee members include:

  • Professional or community work that reflects an applicant’s interest and expertise in Winnipeg’s history and the ongoing impacts and legacy of colonization, locally and internationally;
  • Skills, education and experience in specific areas (such as research, project evaluation and policy analysis) that would allow an applicant to contribute to committee recommendations and influence change;
  • Ability to work effectively within a diverse group to collaboratively address a common goal and are willing to work within City of Winnipeg systems and protocols to address municipal issues; and,
  • Ability to attend meetings on a regular basis, the first meeting is tentatively scheduled for August 12, 2020.
