Petitioning Premier of Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister and 3 others

Reverse cuts to Rent Assist and RGI Housing

Dear Supporter,

Earlier this month, we learned about a change in the Rent Assist program that would affect over 7,000 low-income households, reducing benefits by up to $100 month in some cases. We have also learned that thousands of households in subsidized rent-geared-to-income (RGI) housing will be subject to higher rents. Both these changes will go into effect on July 1, 2017. There is little time to act.

We are asking you to help us reverse this cut in Rent Assist and the rent increases for RGI housing: 

1) Please send the attached letter to Premier Brian Pallister urging him to maintain benefits for low income households in Manitoba.

2) Please sign and share this petition 

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Premier of Manitoba
    Premier Brian Pallister
  • Manitoba Minister of Finance
    Cameron Friesen
  • Manitoba Minister of Families
    Scott Fielding
  • Minister of Education and Training and Chair of the All Aboard Committee
    Ian Wishart
