Citizen's Hall of Fame

The Citizens Hall of Fame was founded and inspired by members of the WinnipegREALTORS® Association in 1986. Initially the WinnipegREALTORS® Association wanted to host an event that would recognize outstanding individual contributions to the City of Winnipeg. It soon became evident that there was no lack of dinners, banquets, and other events honouring Winnipeg citizens for extraordinary achievements. Such recognition, however, was a fleeting testament to individual effort. The lack of permanent and public facility to honour outstanding Winnipeggers led to the creation of the concept of the Citizens Hall of Fame.

As the first of its kind, the Hall of Fame is a permanent momento to the pursuit and attainment of individual excellence and achievement on behalf of one's community. It is a tourist attraction, repository of local history, a source of education to the Winnipeg community, and lastly, a vehicle for displaying talents of local artists.

Manitoba - Land Transfer Tax

In Manitoba, Land Transfer Taxes for a $300,000 home totals a shocking $3,650.00! The fee is completely inexplicable when you consider the actual cost of registering the property. The WinnipegREALTORS® Association wants the Province to reduce its land transfer taxes to make it easier for people to purchase homes. Read the sad TRUTH on this website.  www.2muchltt.com


Housing Opportunity Partnership (HOP)

The Housing Opportunity Partnership (HOP) is a not-for-profit inner city housing revitalization initiative dedicated to reclaiming houses, streets and neighbourhoods by acquiring homes in need of repair; completely upgrading them, and then selling them to new homeowners. HOP is an acronym for Home Ownership Program. HOP believes that home ownership brings stability to a neighbourhood.
