Why Join MUIA?
Whether you are Inuit or someone who lives or works with Inuit, MUIA needs your voice!
As a Member of MUIA, you will be sent regular updates on MUIA activities, and will be invited to gather with Inuit in events held in Winnipeg. You can add your ideas and participate in a call to action to develop services for Inuit who live in Manitoba.
As a Member, you will help to guide MUIA in its activities in the coming years. Be a part of a growing Inuit community here in Manitoba.
Active members are individuals who are Inuit, over 16 years of age, and have lived in Manitoba for 3 months or more.
Associate members are individuals who are Inuit living outside of Manitoba, Inuit under the age of 16, or non-Inuit. Note: When Inuit living in Manitoba reach the age of 16, they automatically become Active members. Once Inuit move to Manitoba for more than three months, they can notify MUIA Membership Coordinator [LINK TO Members@manitobainuit.ca] to be made Active members automatically.
Organizational members are organizations who wish to further the work of MUIA by supporting the organization, who represent Inuit or have an interest in Inuit community activities and who have been accepted by the Directors as Organizational Members. Please contact Members@manitobainuit.ca for more information on becoming an Organizational member.
