We believe that real change begins at the grassroots level, and what could be more critical to our community's future than education? The upcoming School Trustee Elections in the Brandon Manitoba School Division on October 25, 2023, are an opportunity for you to directly influence the direction of education in our region.

Join Our Discussion
To facilitate your decision-making process, we invite all interested community members to join our Manitoba Stronger Together Zoom meetings on October 17 and October 24. During these meetings, we encourage open and thoughtful discussions about the candidates' platforms, their visions for our schools, and how they align with our shared goals.
Our Vision for a Stronger Manitoba
Manitoba Stronger Together is a non-partisan, grassroots organization created by Manitobans for Manitobans. Our aim is to empower our community and ensure that our voices are heard at every level of government. These school trustee elections are a prime example of how we can shape our community's future by participating in the democratic process.
Make Your Vote Count
Your participation is crucial. Voting is not just a right; it's a responsibility. It's much more effective to elect the right candidate in the first place than to spend time later protesting decisions that don't align with our values. By actively engaging with the candidates, discussing their platforms, and casting your vote, you can help create a school board that truly represents our community's needs and aspirations.
