In Winnipeg, 5 days a week, YOU can be Idle No More by supporting local initiatives that are ongoing. Many of our community members volunteer every week, and show kindness, leadership and provide the example that our children need. Always learning, always loving – this is your personal invitation to join the village, spread the word, volunteer as a helper or simply come and be a part of the village we once had coming to life today in 2014.
