As we welcome 2017, I hope you are enjoying our Winnipeg weather or warmer weather down south.

 

Winnipeg and our Federation have much to be proud of. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few of our accomplishments over the last year.

In 2016, we joined together with Federations across Canada to raise funds for the Fort McMurray Fire Relief and the Israel Fire Emergency Fund.
