Communities in Bloom


Manitoba Communities in Bloom 2020 cancelled

The Manitoba Communities in Bloom program provides a comprehensive evaluation beneficial to community development. It encourages all sectors of the community to work together to develop best practices to achieve clean, green sustainable communities that celebrate their heritage and unique potential.  Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, our communities are not currently able to gather and move forward with their different initiatives. The program heavily involves residents working with schools, community gardens, playgrounds and rec centres, libraries and public health facilities. 

On Tuesday, March 24, the difficult decision was made by the Manitoba Communities in Bloom board of directors to cancel the 2020 Provincial Program in Manitoba.  At this current time, the National Program is continuing until further notice. 

Provincial President Michelle Balharry – on behalf of Manitoba Communities in Bloom board of directors, judges and sponsors – sincerely thanks all participating communities for their efforts to be clean, green sustainable places that people are proud to call home.  

"We have seen remarkable community involvement making each and every participating community a better place to live, work and play.  Our wish is to come back in 2021 as a stronger program, to see what your community has done to rebuild and celebrate once again,” said Balharry.
