WELCOME!

MAPC is a non-profit volunteer organization committed to supporting, promoting, and enhancing meaningful involvement of parents and caregivers within school communities, representing their voice to all educational stakeholders to improve the education and well-being of children in Manitoba.

The Manitoba provincial government introduced legislation in 2013 which recognizes Manitoba Association of Parent Councils (MAPC) as the official representative of parent councils in all school divisions in Manitoba (with the exception of Division scolaire franco-manitobaine).

We invite you to take a look around the site and discover many helpful resources for parent advisory councils. To find out more about membership with MAPC please contact us at 204-956-1770 or Toll free 1-877-290-4702.

Call for Resolutions 2017 is now open

Every year, parents serving on school councils discuss educational issues they want to see addressed by the Manitoba government. They record these ideas in “statements of intent” by submitting a resolution for change. Proposed resolutions are reviewed by Manitoba Association of Parent Councils’ (MAPC) membership and voted on at our Annual General Meeting. If passed, these resolutions become part of MAPC position statements. New position statements are submitted to the Minister of Education and Advanced Learning for review and used to promote our position with other decision makers in Manitoba’s education system.

Your Parent Advisory Council must be a current MAPC member in good standing to propose a resolution). Please click here to download the guidelines to assist your PAC in making a submission.

The deadline for submitting a resolution is Friday, February 17, 2017.
