Public Affairs & Advocacy

It is the Federation’s mandate to be effective advocates and representatives for our community, and to build and nurture relationships with the external community.

Government Relations 


Our government relations team is responsible for supporting, sponsoring, and facilitating education and advocacy on issues of importance to Winnipeg’s Jewish community at all levels of Canadian government, working with politicians from every major political party on domestic and foreign-policy issues affecting Jewish Canadians.


Israel Advocacy 


Today, Israel faces intensive and increasingly sophisticated assault on its right to exist as a sovereign, democratic Jewish state. On college campuses and within professional and academic associations, in global politics and throughout local communities, instances of delegitimization targeting Israel continue to arise.


Community Relations and Outreach


The Public Affairs and Advocacy Committee (PAAC) works with Winnipeg’s ethnic community leaders, special interest groups, religious organizations and community members on projects and programming of shared interest.



Media Relations 


We provide journalists with prompt access to information, resources and interviews they need to file their stories.


Combating Antisemitism
