12.5 Million Dollars heading into Winnipeg for housing from federal gov't for Rapid Housing Initiative Announced October 27, 2020

See full message from Prime Minister Trudeau here

Cindy Gilroy “This is a significant opportunity to create affordable housing units and help those experiencing homelessness.  We will work together with our federal counterparts and community partners to identify projects that will take advantage of this program to help the most vulnerable.” 

STATEMENT FROM MAYOR BRIAN BOWMAN

 

WINNIPEG, October 27, 2020 – Statement from Mayor Brian Bowman regarding the federal government’s announcement of the Rapid Housing Initiative:

 

“Housing unsheltered Winnipeggers continues to be a focus of my advocacy directly to Prime Minister Trudeau alongside counterparts on FCM's Big City Mayor's Caucus. I’ve also appreciated the opportunities to speak in support of this focus directly to the Minister of Health Patty Hajdu, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development Ahmed Hussein and Parliamentary Secretary Adam Vaughn. Today's announcement of $12.5 million in support to the City of Winnipeg is a direct result of that advocacy. I want to thank Prime Minister Trudeau for his ongoing support for housing and particularly, what this support will do for those experiencing homelessness. 

 

The City of Winnipeg's public service will work with federal counterparts to finalize agreements and work with community partners like End Homelessness Winnipeg and Winnipeg Housing Rehabilitation Corporation to recommend projects that best support the community and meet the program guidelines.

When to dial 911

All calls are important, but not every call is life threatening.

Call 9-1-1 for emergency situations. 

 

Emergencies are defined as:

  • Any crime in progress (break & enter, robbery, etc)

  • Any situation where people or property are at risk (fire, children on ice, etc)

  • Any medical emergency (heart attack, accidental poisoning, etc)

When Dialing 911

  • Stay on the line, stay calm and explain the emergency, as well as the full address where the emergency is occurring. The address and telephone number from which you are calling is automatically displayed to the operator (unless you are calling from a cell phone).

  • Through appropriate questioning, the 9-1-1 operator will determine what you are reporting and then transfer you to the appropriate Emergency Service (Police, Fire or Paramedics).

  • Let the operator control the conversation and stay on the line until you are told to hang up.

  • On very rare occasions, you may get a recorded message when dialing the 9-1-1 emergency line.Do not hang up. Your call will be answered as soon as an operator is available.

  • If you are unsure if something that is happening is actually an emergency, dial 9-1-1 and report what is happening to the operator. If they decide it is not an emergency, they will simply ask you to hang up and call the non-emergency telephone number.

A Partner in UN Women Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces Global Programme

 

 

In 2013, Winnipeg was selected as the first city in Canada to join the UN Global Safe Cities Initiative to reduce sexual violence against women and girls.

The Safe Cities Initiative supports innovative approaches to preventing and reducing harassment and sexual violence against women and girls in public spaces. I am the chairperson of this Committee for the City of Winnipeg.

Manitoba Status of Women and the City of Winnipeg are partnering with UN Women, representatives from the Winnipeg Police Service and community groups on this initiative. After signing onto the initiative, Manitoba Status of Women, the City of Winnipeg and community and government representatives established the Winnipeg Safe City Steering Committee. The Winnipeg Safe City steering committee identified a five neighbourhood site to target efforts to address this serious crime.
