A: MACY does not report to any government department, or Minister, but the office is accountable to The Legislative Assembly, which is made up of all individuals who were elected by their ridings across the province. Because of this, our office is independent and non-partisan, meaning we are not affiliated with any political party. MACY is also accountable to all Manitobans through a Service Plan that includes goals for the year as well as specific objectives and performance measures. An Annual Report by MACY includes a comparison of actual and expected results identified in the year’s Service Plan.

The Manitoba Advocate has direct authority over the MACY office and all of its programs and activities.
