Who We Are

The Infrastructure Funding Council (IFC) was jointly struck on May 21st, 2010 by Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz and Doug Dobrowolski, President of the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM). Our mandate is an ambitious one: to develop recommendations for a comprehensive municipal infrastructure funding strategy, for submission to the AMM and the City of Winnipeg this November.

Why We’re Writing

We are writing to ask for your help, and the help of stakeholders identified in the attached distribution list. We would like your views on how we can find long-term funding solutions to our communities’ infrastructure deficits. We know that you are busy, but this is an important issue and we hope you’ll share your ideas with us.

Please Write to Us With Your Infrastructure Funding Ideas

The IFC would like your ideas on how to fund Manitoba’s municipal infrastructure on a sustainable basis. We invite you to have a look at the attached Infrastructure Backgrounder and News Release outlining the IFC’s goals, and encourage you to share your thoughts, experience, and suggestions regarding any area of our mandate.

Your submission can be anything from a formal brief to a handwritten note; you can contact us electronically or by regular mail.

We’d appreciate it if you could send us any input by no later than July 30, 2010, to ensure a chance for its full consideration.

(Please note: to ensure that our advice to the AMM and the City is transparent, and our recommendations well-founded, the IFC reserves the right to publish or post any of the submissions we receive in response to this invitation.)
