Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg Review Commission

The Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg Review Commission (also known as the Cumming Commission) was created on October 2, 1962 through an Order-in-Council (No. 1250/62) to investigate the relationship between Metro and area municipalities in terms of finances, government form and structure, and boundaries, to improve inter-governmental relationships. The Commission held several public hearings in April 1963 where citizens were allowed to present and individuals, associations and representatives from various municipalities were invited to submit briefs. While the Commission believed that the Metro government structure was beneficial for the municipalities, they did make recommendations related to taxes, levies, Metro’s jurisdiction over municipalities, and the additional zone. They also recommended that Metro establish four year terms for its Chairman and council members effective as of 1964.

Series consists of the Commission’s report and recommendations, briefs and rebuttals from individuals and organizations, a submission to the commission by Metro, as well as records created by Metro to prepare for the Commission, including correspondence, inter-office memos, research material and reports.
