  12. Social media. It is prohibited to use social media in a manner that is contrary to the Winnipeg MFRC’s mission or detrimental to the community.
 If a participant or visitor does not want to confront someone about offensive behaviour or other issues that violate the Code of Conduct, they should report the behaviour to a Winnipeg MFRC employee.

Violating the Code of Conduct may result in the prohibition of participating in the programs and services of the Winnipeg MFRC and use of the Winnipeg MFRC facilities. When an incident is being investigated, the person accused of violating this Code of Conduct may be temporarily suspended from attending Winnipeg MFRC programs and events pending a final decision.

The Winnipeg MFRC is a shared experience enjoyed by everyone. Each one of us can make the experience more enjoyable by showing some consideration. Members, visitors, volunteers, and employees are committed to treating each other with dignity and respect, taking care of the centre’s facilities, and following the rules. Failure to do so may result in immediate expulsion and the cancellation of registration to any or all activities.
