Sport Manitoba Boundary Change

Title

Regional Boundary Adjustment

To provide the best services possible to Manitobans, Sport Manitoba has restructured the provincial regional zones it recognizes and their boundaries.  Based on feedback collected during our 2014 Rural Review, Sport Manitoba evaluated our regional staffing structure to better meet the needs of regional sport development.  It was clear that more direct programming for coaches and athletes was the biggest area of support review participants suggested.   

Based on the review, Sport Manitoba created new regional positions, Coach & Athlete Development Coordinators.  In order to add additional staff positions, Sport Manitoba restructured regional boundaries to allow for the addition of new regional staff servicing athletes and coaches specifically.  This led to the creation of new regional boundaries which are now being implemented.  The previous seven regions (Norman, Parkland, Interlake, Eastman, Westman, Central and Winnipeg) will now be divided into five regions (North, East, South, West and Winnipeg).  

To date 2 of the 4 new staff positions have been hired. The third position is currently advertisted. Click here for job posting. The fourth coordinator is planned to be hired in the 2018/19 fiscal year.

The new regions recognized by Sport Manitoba will be divided as follows:

East Region

The East Region is now defined as the former Interlake region and the part of the former Eastman region that is north of #1 highway .
