Firefighter Licence Plates
Manitoba firefighters are relied on to protect and safeguard communities across the province. It's time to salute your service.
Putting your own safety at risk, you protect lives, property and the environment. Whether you serve as a career, paid on-call, volunteer or First Nations firefighter, we're recognizing your bravery by offering you a unique licence plate.
This distinct plate recognizes your important contribution to our province.
Who qualifies for Firefighter Licence Plates
You qualify if you are currently or are retired from being a:
- career firefighter
- paid on-call firefighter
- volunteer firefighter
- First Nations firefighter
Immediate family (spouses, common-law partners, dependents and parents) of current, retired or fallen firefighters also qualify.
The cost of the plates is $70 per vehicle, with $30 from every sale going towards the Manitoba Firefighters Burn Fund and the Manitoba Fallen Firefighters Fund.
What vehicles qualify
All passenger vehicles such as cars, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, farm trucks, motorcycles and mopeds qualify for these plates. For Winnipeg firefighters, your badge number can appear on a passenger vehicle plate. Due to space limitations, this option is not available for motorcycle and moped plates.
Use them with your vehicle(s) or as a keepsake
If you meet the eligibility criteria and are the registered owner of one or more vehicles that qualify, you can apply for a Firefighter Licence Plate for all of them. Only one set of plates will be issued per vehicle.
Or, if you don’t own any vehicles, you can still apply for one set of these licence plates as a keepsake.
You cannot transfer your plates to someone else.
How to apply
Complete the application form.
- For Winnipeg career firefighters and immediate families, please forward the completed application form to your union president for signature and endorsement.
