About Us

Our new state-of-the-art training centre in the heart of Calgary serves as a hub for movement conservatives from across Canada

The Manning Centre is dedicated to building Canada’s conservative movement – by strengthening the knowledge, skills, ethical foundations, and networks of political practitioners.

Our goal is to ensure that conservative-oriented politicians command public confidence and govern in accordance with conservative values once elected, including:

Trustworthiness:

  • An informed and deliberate citizenry
  • Principled, ethical and prepared leadership
  • Transparent government

Respect:

  • Individual liberty
  • Grass roots democratic participation and decision-making
  • Canada’s cultural, religious and democratic traditions

Accountability:

  • Fiscal resources and free markets
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Decentralized power and delivery of services

Care:

  • Those who cannot care for themselves
  • Informed and deliberate citizenry
  • Strong families and communities

Knowledge:

  • Historical lessons of the past and valuing tradition
  • Recognition of the relevance and limitations of science
  • Innovative applications of knowledge
