2014 Mynarski BS

Mynarski Ward is a diverse ward in Winnipeg, with much of the ward encompassing what we consider to be the North End. The southern part of the ward (where AYO and most of our work concentrates) is characterized by an increased number of social service agencies, lower household incomes and in recent years a statistical decrease in violent crimes. At the same time, the community challenges are diverse, as the multi-ethnic fabric of the community means there are many, many voices.

Composition of City Council (from winnipeg.ca)

The composition of City Council is legislated under Part 3 of The City of Winnipeg Charter and consists of 15 Councillors and the Mayor. Each Councillor represents an individual ward while the Mayor is elected by a vote of the city-at-large.

Councillors have a dual role: they are members of Council (dealing with decisions affecting the whole city) and members of the Community Committees (dealing with local community issues).

Pursuant to the Charter, Council has the authority to establish committees of Council and Council may, by by-law delegate a power, duty or function to a committee of Council.
