Open Democracy Manitoba
WinnipegElection.ca was built by Open Democracy Manitoba with the goal of increasing community interest in democracy and encouraging government openness.
Open Democracy Manitoba is run by the volunteer efforts of Kyle Geske, Andrew Burton and Ken Harasym. We maintain a similar website for Manitoba provincial elections, ManitobaElection.ca.
Our mission is to empower voters, helping them learn about the roles, issues, and visions of our representatives in order have a more accountable and respectful democracy.
The development of this website was funded in part by a Community Investment grant from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA). CIRA manages the .CA top-level domain, Canada’s online identifier, on behalf of all Canadians. A Member-driven organization, CIRA also facilitates the development of a better Internet for all Canadians, and represents the .CA registry internationally.
