Histoire administrative

The Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg (Metro) was established by Manitoba’s Metropolitan Winnipeg Act in 1960 to govern the distribution of services between the City and surrounding areas. It was dissolved in 1972 when suburban municipalities amalgamated with Winnipeg under the project called Unicity. Metro had jurisdiction over inter-municipal services such as water, parks and public transportation. It was responsible for municipal boards and commissions as well as services previously administered by suburban municipalities. Metro was affiliated with suburban municipal governments, rural and otherwise, for Brooklands, Charleswood, East Kildonan, Fort Garry, North Kildonan, Old Kildonan, Saint-Boniface, Saint-Vital, St. James, Transcona, Tuxedo, and West Kildonan. In 1969 the Province of Manitoba undertook a review of this system, which led to Metro’s dissolution. It was governed by a Council and Committees system, the administrative functions being organised into divisions, and each reporting to the Executive Director of the Corporation. In its time, Metro was the second two-tiered municipal government in North America.

Historique de la conservation

Portée et contenu

Series consists of by-laws for the Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg. By-laws were passed by the Metropolitan Council. Included in this series are schedules, zoning plans, notices, Canadian Electrical Code manuals and other supporting documents. The series documents the initial take over of municipal functions by Metro, as well as municipal regulations such as those related to traffic, streets, building inspections, zoning, parks, town planning, supply of power, bridges, and water throughout Metro’s existence.

By-laws are arranged numerically and are stapled or folded into pages originally folded into four parts. All by-laws have been flattened for storage and preservation purposes. Staples have been removed only in cases where attachments were stapled shut. Supporting documents are mainly kept with their corresponding by-laws but some plans were separated and stored in map cabinets due to their size and for conservation.

Series consists of by-laws 1-272, 274-704, 706, 708-710, 712-1557, 1559-1651, 1653, 1655-1720, 1723-1729, 1732-1795, 1797-1799, and 1801-1928 inclusively. By-laws missing from this series can be found in lower sub-series with the exception of 273, 1730, and 1731. By-law numbers for 1730-1731 were issued but not used, and the same is suspected for 273 but it is unclear.

The records also consist of 3 sub-series. For a more detailed description, see file list.

État de conservation

Although the physical condition varies from good to very poor, all by-laws and by-law volumes require careful handling and would benefit from conservation treatment. Thicker records show more creasing and edge wear. Documents attached to by-laws show more visible damage, with binding on attached manuals coming apart or completely removed. Plans also show creasing and edge wear. Tape, staples, and previous storage conditions have caused further damage.
