Manitoba's new premier is bringing back an old tradition. 

After years of virtual celebrations and cancellations, Premier Wab Kinew announced Thursday that the Manitoba government is inviting all Manitobans to visit the Legislative Building for the 2023 holiday open house. 

“The open house is a long-standing tradition that welcomes Manitobans to the Legislative Building –the people’s building,” said Kinew. “All are welcome to meet the elected officials who have the privilege of representing Manitobans year-round as we celebrate the start of the holiday season together.”

The open house will happen on Dec. 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Those who attend are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the Christmas Cheer Board.

The event is free of charge and welcome to all.
