Volunteer Board

In 2008, a group of dedicated Inuit volunteers incorporated the Manitoba Urban Inuit Association (now known as the Manitoba Inuit Association). Since then, we have worked to obtain financial support, connect with Manitoba organizations, conduct research and lay the ground work to start linking Inuit to a range of services that meet the needs of both long-term Inuit residents, and newly arrived Inuit.
