2019 - Priority Issues

The voting choices of persons with disabilities and their communities of family and support could be a key factor in determining the outcome of the next provincial election. 

One of the primary goals of DMVote is to raise issues that are most important to the quality of life and human rights of people with disabilities in Manitoba and to ask the political parties and candidates to provide clear positions and commitments. Based on discussions with thousands of Manitobans over the last few years, and feedback from our survey, DMVote has selected the five key issues to highlight in the Manitoba provincial election. 

The downloadable facts sheets below highlight the campaign's five priority issues: 

Dignified Income for People with Profound, Long-Term Disabilities

Timely Access to Services

A Fully Accessible Manitoba

Fair Wages for Direct Support Professionals

Unleashing Employment Potential
