The Province of Manitoba has provided the Manitoba Inuit Association with $50,000 for helping provide Covid-19 supports to Manitoba Inuit, the province’s first investment in the group in recognition of its growing role in Manitoba.

This was a part of a greater $3 million investment going toward various Indigenous groups in the province, said Manitoba Indigenous Reconciliation and Northern Relations Minister Alan Lagimodiere on June 10.

The “Manitoba Inuit Association is pleased to have a renewed and engaged relationship with the Province of Manitoba and we thank the honorable Minister Lagimodiere for his leadership in this regard,” said Marti Ford, president of the Manitoba Inuit Association.

“We have grown exponentially since 2012, when we first operationalized our organization, and we have done some exceptional Inuit-led work in our community during the pandemic. An increase to our provincial core funding – is welcomed and needed. Our growing mandate and requirement of increased capacity to meet so many unmet needs of Inuit living in Manitoba and those who have to come down on medical travel.”
