The Winnipeg City Council (French: Conseil municipal de Winnipeg) is the governing body of the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. When the City of Winnipeg amalgamated with surrounding suburbs in 1972 there were 50 part-time councilors. The number of councilors were reduced to 29 part-time councilors in 1977.[1] It was then further reduced to 15 full-time councilors in 1991 when the Government of Manitoba passed Bill 68. It took effect in the 1992 municipal election and has stayed the same for subsequent elections.[2]

Members represent wards throughout the city, and are known as councillors.
