On June 04 1999, the Deputy Minister Committee of departments involved in land related information systems gave the mandate to the Manitoba Land Initiative (MLI) Committee to develop and recommend a structure for a government-wide framework for the management of land-related information. Office of Information Technology was delegated to lead and co-ordinate this initiative.
Representative departments involved in this process included: Agriculture and Food, Industry, Trade and Mines, Conservation, Highways and Government Services, Intergovernmental Affairs, and two special operating agencies: Land Management Services (GS) and Land Titles Offices (CCA). As well as being cross-departmental, the MLI Committee is also cross-functional bringing together information technology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) experts, planners and policy makers.

By October 1999, the MLI Committee had defined a vision for the Manitoba Land Initiative, its goals and its framework. The Deputy Minister Committee accepted the MLI framework together with 18 recommendations that were necessary for creating a new "in-house" corporate approach to land information management and approval was obtained to proceed with the implementation phase.

In November 1999 three technical subgroups were formed:
The Database Subgroup - to allow direct on-line access to all governmental core data through a single Intranet web-page.
The Metadata Subgroup - to catalogue all governmental land related information.
The Cadastral Subgroup - to link ownership, interests, and assessed value information, which is now in textual form, to a spatial map.
