If any MKO youth (ages 16 to 25) have moved to Winnipeg, they may be interested in the Cycle Indigena Winnipeg Program developed by the Manitoba Aboriginal Sport and Recreation Council (MASRC).
This urban bike program offers bicycles, along with accessories, to Indigenous youth from ages 16 to 25. Having access to a bicycle will allow the Indigenous youth to travel wherever and whenever they want. The MASRC believes that giving Indigenous students access to a mode of active transportation will not only improve physical health, but overall well-being.
Successful applicants are required to make necessary arrangements to pick up their bikes. After the participants have received the bicycle, the MASRC is not liable for any stolen property.
If you are an Indigenous youth aged 25 and under (First Nations, Métis, Inuit), a registered student or full/part time worker who lives in Winnipeg, please submit an application by Friday, May 14, 2021.
