W.A.N.T.E. was certified on September 15, 1980. The road to certification began with the Clerks committee and through their hard work and research the Association was formed to represent Clerical Staff and Educational Assistants working within the Division.  The objectives of the Association are to:

  • Unite into one organization all non-managerial and non-teaching employees regardless of race, creed, color, nationality, sex, age, political belief, ancestry or place of origin.
  • Act as a bargaining agent for employees and to regulate the relations between the said employees and their employers in order to establish better rates of pay, hours of work and conditions of employment, and to settle disputes arising out of such matters in an equitable manner.
  • Maintain harmonious relations between the employers and the employees.

The Association currently represents approximately 1700 support staff which include:

  • Adult Crossing Guard
  • Child Development Lab Assistants
  • Clinical Assistants
  • Computer Technicians
  • Educational Assistants
  • Food Coordinators
  • Home Learning Assistants
  • Interpreters
  • Library Technicians
  • Secretarial and Clerical Staff
  • Vocational Trainers
  • Volunteer Assistant Coordinator & Coordinator
  • Work Experience Coordinators


Hello WANTE Members….   Langtry here….  Well, I’m on the social committee and we are trying to figure out how to get you all out to a social event…  besides the annual dinner… Soooo…  I thought that I’d put it out there to you all… so here is a new poll…  not like the old poll, hehe..  at any rate…

We want to know what you would like to do as a WANTE member, with other members – outside of work, that WANTE could possibly facilitate….

So – Pick Three and we’ll see what you all most want, I’m liking a Sat afternoon Potluck Picnic at Assiniboine park myself, but that ‘s me… Cheers!
