About Us

Fort Richmond and University Heights are two beautiful, residential communities surrounding the suburban University of Manitoba. The University of Manitoba is our province’s largest university with a community comprised of nearly 30,000 students, 8,700 faculty and staff, and 190,000 alumni. About 15% of the University’s students are international, representing close to 115 countries.

rental volunteers The Fort Richmond – University Heights Neighbourhood Association is a volunteer, community-based organization of homeowners that united to address concerns about the growing number of unethical landlords moving into the neighbourhood, illegally subdividing houses, renting unsafe rooms to unsuspecting tenants, and neglecting their properties.

By working with the area City Councillor and a City of Winnipeg Task Force of community and zoning by-law enforcement officers, the Fort Richmond – University Heights Neighbourhood Association is ensuring homeowners, tenants and landlords know their rights and responsibilities.

All members of the Association are volunteers, donating their time and efforts to contribute to a safe, diverse and family friendly community.
