Report a vacant or derelict building
View the City of Winnipeg's Active Vacant Building By-law Compliance Orders.
Vacant buildings negatively impact our communities by:
- Increasing the risk of fire
- Creating safety hazards for firefighters and emergency personnel (gaping holes in floors, broken steps, etc.)
- Contributing to urban blight
- Attracting illegal activities
The intent of the Vacant Buildings By-law is to contribute positively to neighbourhood renewal by discouraging vacant buildings to remain inactive for extended periods of time, and ensuring vacant buildings are brought to habitable standards prior to occupancy.
For more information, see the Vacant buildings brochure.
