Like so many organizations, Manitoba 150 continues to monitor information about COVID-19. We are committed to following the recommendations of the Government of Manitoba and the Chief Provincial Public Health Officer.
Where Manitoba 150 has provided funding to organizations and communities through initiatives such as Celebrate 150, we support the decision of each organization as to whether their event will proceed and encourage Manitobans to consult the event organizers to find out the status of each project.
Due to the rapidly evolving global COVID-19 situation, the Province of Manitoba has announced that all Manitoba 150 initiated events are being paused until further notice. As a result, the free summer concert, Unite 150 presented by Bell MTS, is now being planned for summer of 2021. All remaining events and activities associated with Manitoba 150 are being postponed, but funding will remain in place to support community projects and events when public health advises it is once again safe to hold large public gatherings.
Like all Manitobans, we are focused on the critical health and economic issues facing our province and country, and understand the difficult choices that have to be made.
We look forward to gathering with friends and family, relaxing to music with a Manitoba heartbeat, and being united in celebration once it is again safe to do so.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
