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 2021. 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.
The year 2020 marks 150 years since Manitoba became Canada’s fifth province, the only province to enter Confederation under Indigenous leadership. Manitoba 150 supports programs and events that cultivate pride in our province, foster a profound connection with our diverse cultures and, above all, unite us in celebration.
