Open Democracy Manitoba (ODM) is now a registered non-profit corporation!
I helped found ODM six years ago, in the summer of 2010. Since then we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of voters research their candidates and learn about their local democratic process by way of WinnipegElection.ca and ManitobaElection.ca.
We recently launched WinnipegElected.ca, a site where citizen can easily follow Winnipeg City Council decisions on reports, motions and by laws. The site was developed with the assistance of the Winnipeg Clerk’s Department.
Incorporating as a non-profit will help us in securing grants, allowing us to continue to empower the citizens of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and beyond, through our online tools and resources.
