Municipal Silica Sand Advisory Committee Update

The RM of Ste. Anne is proud to partner with these 6 other Municipalities, spearheaded by the RM of Tache, to study possible impacts from silica sand mining operations with the intent to determine possible mitigation measures that can then be enacted by municipal regulations and by-laws in order to ensure an appropriate, safe and sustainable use of our lands. Click Here to see the full News Release on Municipal Silica Sand Advisory Committee latest update Oct 4th 2022.

Manitoba's response to detecting CWD in Manitoba

CWD is an incurable fatal disease that affects members of the deer (cervid) family, which includes white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, moose and caribou. While there is currently no direct evidence CWD can spread to humans, meat from an infected animal is not recommended for consumption.

Manitoba has announced that detection of chronic wasting disease has expanded its surveillance zone. The province is asking all hunters in these areas to play a key role in preventing the spread of CWD by submitting samples from their harvest for testing. Working collaboratively with local landowners, Indigenous communities, key stakeholders and hunters on a CWD response effort is a priority and will continue to be important to support the long-term sustainability of deer family populations in Manitoba. For more information on CWD please visit the Government of Manitoba website.


News Release from AMM



June 1, 2022 - To assist registered and perspective candidates in the upcoming municipal elections, the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) has formally launched a new comprehensive Municipal Elections Resource Hub on the AMM website. The hub features several resources and informational materials relevant to candidates, election officials and municipal administrators.


In addition, the Resource Hub includes a series of testimonial videos from current and former elected municipal officials that highlight key considerations along with tips and advice for candidates. Individuals participating in the testimonial videos include:

·Honourable Eileen Clarke, Minister of Municipal Relations

·Mayor Brian Bowman, City of Winnipeg

·Mayor Rick Chrest, City of Brandon

·Mayor Al Friesen, Town of Altona

·Councillor Karen MacKinnon, City of Flin Flon

·Councillor Melanie Parent, RM of Piney

·Shirley Kalyniuk, Former AMM Vice-President and Mayor of Town of Rossburn

·Jeff McConnell, Former Mayor of Town of Virden

·Glen McKenize, Former Mayor of Town of Swan River

·Chris Goertzen, Former AMM President and Mayor of City of Steinbach

·Nettie Neudorf, Former MMA President and CAO of RM of Portage la Prairie

·Executive Director Denys Volkov, AMM


“We are hopeful that these newly created resources will help raise awareness of the roles and responsibilities of municipal governments and empower more Manitobans to run for municipal politics. As municipal leaders play a vital role in shaping community priorities, I encourage all candidates to refer to the AMM’s Municipal Elections Resource Hub to better understand the roles and responsibilities of local Council,” stated Kam Blight, AMM President.


To further support the elections and inform Manitobans, candidate information and voting results will be available on the AMM’s dedicated municipal elections website at www.MBvotes.ca. This interactive website will include several enhanced data reporting features while information will be bilingual, thanks to French translation provided by the Association of Manitoba Bilingual Municipalities (AMBM).


For elections held on October 26, 2022, candidate registration for Heads of Council officially opened on May 1, 2022, and registration for Councillors will commence on June 30, 2022. Three municipalities – Town of Winnipeg Beach, Village of Dunnottar, RM of Victoria Beach – will hold elections on July 22, 2022.
