MLA: MATT WIEBE – CONCORDIA

Dear Lord, thank you for our MLA Matt Wiebe and for the opportunity you have given him to serve his constituency of Concordia. May Matt continue to promote resources to empower all Manitobans to succeed in the future. Give him clear solutions for providing safer communities within our province. Protect him and his family. May they continue to grow in favour with those they come in contact with. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


“Safe communities, more recreation opportunities, and the best schools in the country – that’s how we empower young Manitobans and prepare them for the future.”


Matt Wiebe has a proven ability to bring people together. As a community organizer, Matt spearheaded several initiatives in his home neighbourhood of Elmwood around the issues of adult literacy training, support for new Canadians, neighbourhood beautification and crime and safety issues. The broad base of trust he built throughout the community was critical to his election as MLA for Concordia in 2010 and re-election in 2011.


With Matt as MLA, Concordia has continued to experience exciting growth, including the rebuilding of the East Elmwood Community Centre, the upgrading and repaving of Molson Street, and support for new housing and health care initiatives at Concordia Hospital.


Matt is dedicated to building a safer, healthier, greener northeast Winnipeg. He has served as a board member of the Elmwood Community Resource Centre as well as the volunteer chair of the Elmwood Safety Committee and the Communities That Care initiative. He’s proud to be part of a government that is focused on public safety.
