2016 Manitoba Planning Conference
May 18 - 20, 2016
Envisioning Manitoba: Building Futures Together
Where do we want to be in 20 or 30 years? Today’s planning challenges cross natural, economic, social and cultural boundaries. How can we embrace diversity and move forward with respect, trust and cooperation to achieve common goals? Through planning, we can bridge gaps between communities and adapt to meet the current and future needs of Manitoba’s diverse population. At this conference, participants will expand networks and gain new knowledge and insight by exploring Relationship Building, Visioning and Practical Tools.
This conference has been held annually since 2000 and is unique in Canada as delegates include planners, academics and students, and municipal councillors and staff. Municipal councillors and staff representing over 60% of delegates. This is the first year we will be trying to fill most of the concurrent sessions and workshops through a Call for Presentations
