Jennifer Roblin

Jennifer RoblinJennifer Roblin was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is an accomplished actress. She graduated from The University of Winnipeg Collegiate (class of 1979); studied history at Trinity College, University of Toronto; and is a graduate of The American Conservatory Theatre of San Francisco’s Advanced Training Program. She has acted on Broadway and in repertory theatre in both the US and Canada.

Jennifer gives generously of her time and resources, and is dedicated to helping fight child poverty in Winnipeg’s inner city. She recognizes the importance of after-school homework clubs, cultural programs, and free public meeting spaces to communities with limited resources.

For the last five years, she has hosted an annual spring tea at her home in Toronto in support of the Wii Chiiwaakanak Learning Centre at UWinnipeg. She has also pledged her ongoing support to the Duff Roblin Scholars Program, named in honour of her late father, The Honourable Duff Roblin, former Premier of Manitoba.

In 2015, she co-signed a letter to Collegiate classmates in support of the $5M Leatherdale Hall Campaign, which spurred the resurrection of Tony’s Canteen, a storied cafeteria that was fondly remembered by decades of Collegiate graduates.

In Toronto, Jennifer is committed to supporting newcomers and Syrian refugee families, as they transition into their new Canadian lives.
