Manning formed the Reform Party in 1987. His chief policy adviser was Stephen Harper, a student at the University of Calgary and now the Prime Minister of Canada. Harper designed the Reform Party's 1988 campaign platform. The Reform Party was a combination of fiscal conservatism and populism, though aspects of social-conservatism grew, branding the party as "very right-wing." All of the Reform Party's candidates were defeated in the 1988 federal election. However, the first Reform Member of Parliament, Deborah Grey was elected in a Federal by-election in 1989 at Beaver River, Alberta. Manning was elected to the House of Commons in the 1993 federal election, when Reform experienced its first major electoral success, replacing the Progressive Conservative Party as Canada's dominant conservative party, with a base especially in Western Canada. In the 1997 election, the party became Canada's official opposition, with Manning becoming the Leader of the Opposition.

With Reform's emergence, however, Manning fragmented the conservative vote into two parts - Reform and the weakened PC Party. With Canada's plurality voting system, the result was political domination by the Liberal Party. Consequently, Manning's new goal was to reunite the two conservative parties under his leadership, and he launched the United Alternative movement to examine ways for the parties to cooperate. The movement resulted in the formation of a new party, the Canadian Alliance, which as its full name (Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance) shows, was intended to supplant both parties. Most of the PC Party, however, refused to cooperate, and critics claimed the new party was little more than an image makeover for the Reform Party.

Manning published his memoirs of political life, Think Big: Adventures in Life and Democracy, in October 2003. He ends the book by promising to "scout" the future of Canada; he is in this sense continuing to write about policy, especially policy that he feels will be detrimental to the future of the country.

Manning also served as Governor General for the British Columbia Universities Model Parliament Society (BCUMP) in January 2006.

Following the "crushing blow" received by Ralph Klein in the Alberta Progressive Conservative Party's leadership review vote in which Klein received the support of only 55% of delegates, Manning told Canadian Press that he was "leaving the door open" for a possible bid in the Alberta Progressive Conservative leadership election being held to choose a successor to Ralph Klein[2]. He announced on May 18, 2006 that we would not be a candidate in the leadership election, citing a desire to remain close to family and to influence politics by generating new policy ideas through the Manning Centre.
