Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) Community Leadership Award

The Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) represents all 137 incorporated municipalities in Manitoba, including the City of Winnipeg, and lobbies for issues that affect its members. Many of these issues are raised by its members through resolutions or correspondence, which are then brought to the attention of the Manitoba or Federal government. Other issues are initiated by senior levels of government when they draft legislation or regulations that affect municipalities. The AMM monitors and responds to any legislation affecting municipal government.
