As proposed changes to provincial sign regulations and municipal sign bylaws began to heat up in Manitoba, a new relevance for protection re-emerged in 2008.  Industry leaders from across the province knew the time had come to band together in an effort to prevent the ratification of changes that would negatively impact the Sign Industry. In February 2009 there was a reformation of the Manitoba Chapter of the Sign Association of Canada.

The Goal of the Manitoba Chapter of the Sign Association of Canada is to become a first point of contact for any regulatory body seeking to revise their signage regulations. The Manitoba Chapter will remain accessible at all times to the regulatory bodies on all levels and use our varied and extensive backgrounds to promote equitable and beneficial service as required. To promote harmony and trust between the various levels of government and the industry is paramount.
