To ensure alignment between government and Manitoba's Crown Corporation priorities.


"Work collaboratively with Crown Corporations, departments, the private sector and non-government organizations to deliver effective and consistent policy analysis, planning, and reporting requirements under the act."   


What We Do

There are currently five Crown Corporations governed by The Crown Corporations Governance and Accountability Act with the following principal reporting requirements:
  • A Roles and Responsibility Record
  • Annual Business Plans
  • Quarterly and Annual Financial Reports
Additionally, the act provides for the issuing of Ministerial Mandate Letters and Directives to the Crown Corporations to promote alignment with government priorities and policy.  


The secretariat consists of two units:

  • The Policy Unit prepares documents, manages legislative and regulatory needs, provides analysis of major capital proposals and liaises with Crowns to address concerns of Manitobans.
  • The Regulatory Unit ensures compliance with reporting requirements of the act, and provides analysis and advice with respect to business plans, capital plans and other major decisions that boards of the Crown Corporations may make.
