Tony Eetak (Creativity for Entrepreneurship, Global Dignity Canada), Nunavut, Dan Vandal (our local Member of Parliament for St. Boniface and St. Vital), Constance Menzies (Chocolatier Constance Popp) and Jamie Bell (Inclusion in Northern Research) take in the sights and sounds of historic St. Boniface during the start of this year’s Canada Day long weekend in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The Canada Day long weekend caps off two full weeks of activities ranging from conference sessions for the Auviqsaqtut Inuit Studies Conference, connecting with researchers, artists and youth from new ArcticNet-supported projects in communities like Winnipeg, Arviat, Nunavut; Borups Corners, Northwestern Ontario and Tuktoyaktuk, NWT.

While in Winnipeg, the team also hosted consultations and group discussions on the impacts of projects like Adaptive Phased Management along with results sharing workshops as part of the Winnipeg-based incubator for digital and cultural entrepreneurship with support from the Canada Council for the Arts and Minneapolis College of Art And Design.

There’s always something exciting to see and do in St. Boniface and it’s one of the best neighbourhoods in Winnipeg to explore and shop. We thank Dan and Constance for such a warm Winnipeg welcome and for their efforts in supporting community-based research and participatory learning experiences, especially those involving youth.

Happy Canada Day!
