The document Indigenous Organizations in Manitoba: A Directory of Groups and Programs Organized by or for First Nations, Inuit, and Metis People was compiled, edited, and printed by the Indigenous Inclusion Directorate, Manitoba Education and Training and Indigenous Relations at Manitoba Indigenous and Municipal Relations. You can download a PDF version of this directory here.

The directory of Indigenous organizations is designed as a useful reference and resource book to help people locate appropriate organizations and services.

The directory also serves as a means of improving communications among people. The idea for the directory arose from the desire to make information about Indigenous organizations more available to the public. This directory was first published in 1975 and has grown from 16 pages in the first edition to more than 100 pages in the current edition.

The directory reflects the vitality and diversity of Indigenous cultural traditions, organizations, and enterprises.

The editorial committee has made every effort to present accurate and up-to-date listings, with fax numbers, email addresses and websites included whenever possible. If you see any errors or omissions, or if you have updated information on any of the programs and services included in this directory, please call, fax or write to the Indigenous Relations:

We included organizations and programs that are:

  • organized by Indigenous people (First Nations, Inuit and Metis)
  • organized for Indigenous people
  • not organized specifically for Indigenous people, but used by many Indigenous people

In compiling this list the committee has made an attempt to include the following information:

  • the name of the organization
  • the address, telephone and fax number, email address and website address
  • the purpose and functions of the organization
  • the geographical area served, or other limits to service provided
