By October 1999, the MLI Committee have 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.
