On January 23, 2019, the Manitoba government announced the appointment of a nine-member Commission to undertake a comprehensive review of the province’s K-12 education system. The mandate of the Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education is to “carry out an independent review of the province’s K to 12 education system. Its goal will be improving outcomes for students, ensuring long-term sustainability and enhancing public confidence in our education system." Specifically, the Commission will:

  • propose a renewed vision for K to 12 education;
  • make recommendations that inspire excellence in teaching and learning, and ignite positive, progressive change in existing systems, structures and programs; and
  • look at the K to 12 system as a continuum that takes an integrated, lifelong approach to learning, with strong links between early learning, post-secondary education and labour market success.
