Downtown Winnipeg BIZ: Memo - The latest information for BIZ Members
Take the survey graphic

Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,

The survey deadline is today!

Tell us where you think we should be focusing our time, energy and resources by taking our 2021 member survey. It should only take about 10 minutes and once completed, you’ll be entered in a draw for a gift card to a downtown business. It’s a great way to show support for your neighbour!

Please complete the survey before 4:00 p.m. today.

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions.

Community residents urgently need help

You may have heard about the closure at the Manwin Hotel. Public health officials shut down the residence citing a lack of heat and water. The residents of the hotel represent some of our city’s most vulnerable population.

Some of the residents have been relocated to the New Lodge Hotel and are now without access to a kitchen. Our partners at the DCSP (Downtown Community Safety Partnership) reached out to let us know residents are struggling to find meals and are looking for donations of the following items:

  • Ready-made meals
  • Food items that require little-to-no cooking (microwavable)
  • Utensils, plates, bowls
  • unused/day-old food items

If you are in a position to help, or know someone who is, donations can be dropped off at the New Lodge Hotel, 690 Notre Dame. Contact us at if you have any questions.

Add your event to our calendar for no-cost promotion

Did you know our website has an events calendar? Adding your event not only displays it on our website, but it helps us better promote your initiatives on our social media channels and in the Mingle, our e-newsletter to the public.

Every event is eligible, no matter the size. Hosting Jets viewing events at your restaurant, bar or lounge? Have a link to a virtual concert, comedy show or performance? Offering a webinar or virtual discussion? Put it on our calendar!
