The 2022 Winnipeg Alternative Municipal Budget is a community effort co-written by 27 authors from 18 community organizations. After two decades of austerity and two pandemic years, the City of Winnipeg is at a crossroads. Infrastructure is crumbling and services are facing cuts year after year. A housing crisis, heightened police violence, and the effects of climate change all loom large in Winnipeg. The 2022 Alternative Municipal Budget presents a renewed vision for Winnipeg, based around community approaches to safety, poverty reduction, truth and reconciliation, and protecting the environment. Presented in a balanced financial framework, we show how Winnipeg can rebuild a more just and sustainable city.
