Urban Exchange website re-launched

October 21, 2008

United Way is excited to announce the re-launch of our Urban Exchange website! Urban Exchange is all about creating a dialogue between Winnipeggers and United Way. The response has been amazing. Over 4000 folks just like you have shared thoughts and opinions about our city. The new MyCityMySay.ca is a chance to continue that great conversation.

Comm News - New MyCityMySay website Oct 3/08The Results page includes an article about the first UrbEx report Urban Reflections: Winnipeggers have their say about our city and its direction.

You can also check out the the Have Your Say section where you’ll find the current Urban Exchange survey and a cool new way to participate… “What Do You Love About Winnipeg?” Just send us a paragraph, photo, or video describing your favourite thing about Winnipeg, and we’ll post some of your submissions!

For example, one contributor writes, “I love Winnipeg because of the warmth of my fellow citizens. Winnipeg’s great strengths are its central location in Canada and the continent, its history as well as its youthful exuberance, its wonderfully broad and growing diversity of peoples and cultures, and its four distinct and glorious seasons. We have it all, and are working hard at fixing what needs fixing and expanding what is really good.”

For a limited time, anyone with a submission will be eligible to receive great prizes!
