Downtown Winnipeg BIZ: Memo - The latest information for BIZ Members

Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,

Manitoba remains in Code Red

On Thursday, March 18, the Manitoba government asked for feedback about a possible move to Code Orange. After reviewing the public feedback, the Province says it will remain at the ‘critical’ (red) level and will not be making public health order changes to restaurants or indoor gatherings.

The minor changes announced on Tuesday include:

  • Increasing gathering limits at outdoor gatherings to 25 from 10 people.
  • Maintaining retail capacity limits of 50%, but expanding in-store limits to 500 people (whichever is lower) with other public health measures still in place.

The changes go into effect on Friday, March 26 at 12:01 a.m. and will expire on April 15.

For more details, please see the Province’s news release.

Celebrate Earth Day and help clean up downtown

Organize a team to pitch in and help clean up downtown! This year, we are arranging for smaller teams that can be spread out around downtown to ensure space for physical distancing. This is a great way for your employees to connect outside while pitching in for the planet.

We’ll supply pickers, garbage bags, gloves and maps of the area for a safe and simple cleanup. We can also provide disposable masks and our Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Enviro Team will help haul the collected rubbish. The final deadline to register will be April 7. If you are interested, please email our Events Coordinator by March 30 so we can plan for everyone who wants to pitch in.

When: April 21 (the day before Earth Day)
Time: TBD
Where: Downtown Winnipeg

For more information or to secure a spot, email Lindsay Grieve, Events Coordinator, at by March 30.

As always, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions:

Thank you,

Kate Fenske, CEO
Downtown Winnipeg BIZ
