Indigenous Relations Division

Meet the Team

Each member of the team brings a unique professional and cultural perspective to the work of the Indigenous Relations Division. Our identities are as diverse as the Indigenous communities, nations, and families in-and-surrounding Winnipeg. This diversity motivates us to promote inclusive approaches and provide leadership and experience from an Indigenous perspective to support City of Winnipeg programs, services and initiatives. Through our roles in public service and pride as Indigenous people we are eager to serve and engage all citizens of Winnipeg, whether you have newly arrived or you share a long history with this land.

"There is a true demand for an initiative (like this) inside the city," said Anderson, also a University of Winnipeg student. "The only way that we're going to be able to reach people is through opportunities, which the city has given us through this initiative."
