Jasmin Winter

Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) in Indigenous Development

Jasmin Winter

Jasmin Winter was born on the West Coast in Vancouver, B.C. (traditional territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh), studied on the East Coast at McGill University (situated on the traditional land of the Kanien’kehá:ka), and is now meeting in the middle to pursue the University of Winnipeg’s MDP (on Treaty One territory, traditional lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples and homeland of the Metis Nation).

Jasmin’s academic studies so far have been largely preoccupied by matters of sustainable socio-economic community development, and her current passion is directed towards exploring pathways to self-sufficiency within food and energy production. For the past three summers Jasmin has also worked as a program assistant for the organization Frontier College in the Cree community of Nemaska, Quebec.

Jasmin is looking particularly forward to the practical, professionally-driven nature of the MDP and cannot wait to participate in her future field placements.
