The Partnership of the Manitoba Capital Region has been meeting together since 1999 to: work together to develop a competitive, economically strong Capital Region;build strong civic leadership in the Capital Region and strengthen working relationships;create awareness of Capital Region issues and concerns; and resolve issues.
The Partnership of the Manitoba Capital Region is committed to a relationship of cooperation founded in communication, mutual understanding, trust and respect. We believe that through collaboration, the Capital Region as a whole can be greater than the sum of its parts, and a model of regional cooperation and planning.
Our Partnership provides the opportunity for Capital Region municipalities to discuss and work on issues that cross their respective boundaries. It supports a flexible approach that recognizes that different issues may involve different stakeholders and different regional processes.
The Partnership of the Manitoba Capital Region is supportive of the many regional and inter-municipal initiatives that currently exist in the Manitoba Capital Region. It recognizes and supports the autonomy of local government to develop and implement inter-municipal agreements. The organization also recognizes local government autonomy to deal with other governments and stakeholders directly.
The following is the Vision Statement for the Partnership of the Manitoba Capital Region:
"A safe, healthy, efficient, prosperous and strong Capital Region with a strong Capital City, where the public, governments, and organizations work together cooperatively, enhancing community development opportunities, effectively managing resources, and providing all citizens with a high quality of life."
