Governing Documents

The Governing Documents of the University of Manitoba include all Policies, Bylaws, Regulations and Procedures approved by the Board of Governors, Senate and the University Administration. The official versions of all of these documents are contained on this website, and are updated continuously as changes are approved by the Approving Bodies.
All Governing Documents are categorized under the ten subject headings listed on the left-hand side of this page. Clicking on a category will provide a list of all the Governing Documents related to that category. An alphabetical listing of all Governing Documents is also available for ease of reference.

Any questions of a general nature, including guidance related to the development of, and approval process for, Governing Documents may be referred to the Office of Legal Counsel at 204-474-7843. Any questions regarding the specific application and administration of a Governing Document may be directed to the contact listed at the beginning of each Governing Document.

Anyone who is beginning to develop a new Governing Document, or is planning to make revisions to an existing one, is required to complete a Governing Document Proposal Form and provide it to the Office of Legal Counsel for approval.

All Governing Document development templates can be found on the Office of Legal Counsel section of the Website under Governing Documents.
