The New Home Warranty Program of Manitoba Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of a Board of Directors, a Registration Committee, a Technical Committee, and staff.

Board of Directors

The heart of our organization can be found in our Board which is comprised of 5 elected Builder Members and 5 appointed Non-Builder representatives from associated industries.

Our Board is responsible for the Program's longevity by involving themselves in almost every mechanism which provides organization and direction to the New Home Warranty Program. The balanced representation between builders and non-builders ensures that the direction taken is equitable for both builder members and homeowners. It also allows for flexibility, a diverse knowledge base, and a progressive outlook when it comes to decision making and policy revision. Some of the areas in which the Board is involved are:

  • Policies and procedures
  • Projects and joint-ventures
  • Ratification of decisions made by our Committees resulting in their resolution

Technical Committee

Our Technical Committee is responsible for reviewing and providing recommendations on all claims involving a possible 'major structural defect' (2 - 5 year items). The Committee is also involved in any dispute or revision regarding the warranty clauses and defect guidelines. Representation is comprised of 3 builder members, a qualified Engineer and a City of Winnipeg Inspections Officer. The expertise and dedication of this Committee ensures that claims are dealt with fairly and in a timely manner.

Registration Committee

The Registration Committee meets to review membership renewals and new applications for membership. This Committee is comprised of representation from the Canadian Bankers' Association, the Program's Chief Executive Officer, an accountant, and a lawyer.

Staff

Our office is currently comprised of a Chief Executive Officer, Warranty Manager/Inspector and Administrative Staff. The staff are responsible for all incoming inquiries, claims review, the processing of various forms, registration and renewal of membership, and advertising.
