WSD Revenue

Province’s Funding of Schools Program                



Provincial grants to Manitoba’s public school divisions are provided through the Funding of Schools Program (FSP). The FSP includes both operating and capital support for school divisions and is administered by the Public Schools Finance Board. 

This funding, disbursed to school divisions, is intended to support the success of students in Grades K to 12. The FSP funding consists of the following components:

Base Support – includes per pupil funding for the delivery of K to 12 educational programs and services. Funding is provided for instructional support, curricular materials, information technology, library services, counselling/guidance, professional development, physical education, building occupancy and other student services.

Categorical Support – funding is available for students with supplementary needs including Transportation; English as an additional language, Indigenous and French supports; Special needs, Literacy and Numeracy; and Early Childhood Development. A complete listing of categorical funds received by WSD is included in the table below.

Equalization Support – provided to recognize the varying abilities of school divisions to meet the cost of unsupported program requirements through the property tax base of the school division. There is an additional calculation called Additional Equalization, which is provided to assist school divisions that have both higher than average tax effort and lower than average assessment per pupil.

Other Program Support – includes grants for School Buildings Support (“D” Projects), Technology Education Equipment Replacement, Skills Strategy Equipment Enhancement and other minor capital support.

Other Department of Education

Manitoba Education also provides additional revenue to offset the operating costs of WSD. Some examples include funding for: Early Years Education Initiative, Interdivision Student Services, Nursing Supports (URIS), New Schools, Healthy Schools, General Support Grant, Learning to Age 18 Coordinator, Career Development Initiative Grant and the Tax Incentive Grant.

Other Provincial Government Departments

Consists of revenue received from the Manitoba Government Reporting Entity (GRE), other than the Department of Education. Includes funding for the Adult Learning Centres.

Formula Guarantee

Support that is calculated by way of a formula.

Non-Provincial Revenue Sources

Includes Federal government, Municipal government, other school divisions, First Nations authorities, private organizations, individuals and other sources.

Property Taxation

Includes the Special Levy property tax (on a school year basis)

Funding Gaps

To the extent that provincial funding through the FSP is insufficient to cover the costs of providing programs and services, the gap created is covered through other means, primarily by a Special Levy administered by the City of Winnipeg. The gaps are described below using budgeted data.
