Annual Report


This past year has seen some growth and change but overall consistency. In January, we welcomed Alex to our team as our Program Assistant – she has kept us so organized and always ensures the kids are well-fed. New community and school partnerships were made as 5 new schools joined us for our second annual STEM Day event. We also hosted our largest ever Indigenous STEAM camp in the summer. The foundational and core community outreach programs that are our language and cultural programs are ongoing and continue to be filled. It is our privilege to do this work and we enjoy sharing a look back at the year.  

In June, I finished the added responsibilities of being Acting Lead for Indigenous Engagement and welcomed Dr. Chantal Fiola as the Interim AVP, Indigenous. Again, I must thank the WiiChii team, our volunteers, and partners for going over and above in their work to support all of our programs. 

For 2023, CanCode continued to be the largest funder of the Centre, specifically with our STEAM outreach programs. We welcomed Boeing as a new funder of our STEAM camp and were thankful for the ongoing support from funders like the Kingfisher Foundation, The Winnipeg Foundation, Jen Roblin and friends who support the Tea for WiiChii. As an externally funded Centre, we cannot do this important work without it.
