Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
Winnipeg is located within Treaty No. 1 Territory, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe (Ojibway), Ininew (Cree), Oji-Cree, Dene, and Dakota, and is the Birthplace of the Métis Nation and the Heart of the Métis Nation Homeland. For centuries, Winnipeg was the meeting place of thousands of Indigenous peoples throughout North America. The effects of colonialism, genocide, and intergenerational trauma are still felt deeply today. Truth and Reconciliation is essential for WICM..
Where We’re Building a Brighter Future
for an inner-city community where individuals, children, and their families have greater opportunities to break the cycle of poverty. We embrace all people in Winnipeg’s inner-city, inspiring life-long learning, and building social and personal well-being.

Where We’re Growing Together
The neighbourhood we operate in is vastly underserved, and at present, there is no community centre. There are a number of available supports for people facing immediate homelessness and some limited childcare supports, but no services for individuals and families living in the neighbourhood, especially Indigenous community members.
The Renew. (re)Imagine. campaign is about to change all of that through the redevelopment, renovation, and revitalization of the Annishinaabe Fellowship Centre.
There are 5 Phases to complete this project, and we need your help to finish funding Phase 1. Currently we have raised over $330,000.00 towards our $500,000.00 tendered goal. We’re nearly there!
This will bring the arts to life in our neighbourhood while providing opportunities for traditional Indigenous teachings.
You will never know their truth until you hear their story.

WHY YOUR GIFT MATTERS
When you make a donation to support WICM, you join thousands of generous individuals who are making an impact in Winnipeg’s Inner City. You help children receive education and enriching life experiences. You provide resources to adults looking to better their future. You help our staff ensure these programs are executed effectively.
Without you, and your generosity we could not do this.
In our First Steps to Independence Program we offer support to adults struggling with social and financial stability who are looking to take steps towards upgrading their education, achieving financial security, and living independently.
We offer after school programs and summer camps for children and youth at Flora House. Children participate in various activities within a Learning Through Play model with a focus on literacy, well-being, tradition, and nutrition.
