Healthy Communities Survey
The City of Winnipeg’s current public engagement process on police funding models ignores the well-documented community demands to reduce funding to the Winnipeg Police Service and reallocate its enormous budget to life-sustaining services that actually create safer conditions in our city.

The Winnipeg Police is set to spend $320 million in 2022, over one-quarter of the city’s budget. Yet, according to a Statistics Canada survey released in 2020, Manitoba is “rock bottom among the provinces on the issue of trust in police.” The same survey found that an estimated one-third of Winnipeg residents supported reducing police funding. Justice4BlackLives Winnipeg’s petition, which includes a demand for defunding and abolishing police, has received more than 120,000 signatures.

The City’s current process silences community voices calling to defund the police and shields the police from scrutiny, accountability, and real public input.

We need public engagement processes that actually represent community demands, so we created our own. Long term defunding models need to be included in any discussion about police budgets in 2022.
