The Manitoba Aboriginal Sport & Recreation Council (MASRC)
is a non-profit organization that was established in 1994. They are committed to impacting the lives of Aboriginal people in Manitoba by providing opportunities to participate in sporting and recreational activities, while fostering and encouraging cultural awareness. By providing these opportunities, the capacity of the Aboriginal community itself, to offer and deliver sport and recreational programs is increased. The MASRC partners with community based local groups, as well as regional, national and international organizations. In 2011 the MASRC formally took over the Kidsport equipment warehouse from Sport Manitoba (KidSport MB). They are now able to provide gently used and new sports equipment to many hundreds of low income families each year. The MASRC’s service area encompasses all of Manitoba, including 63 First Nation, 50 Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Communities, 561 Manitoba Métis Federation Locals and 4 urban areas including the Cities of Winnipeg, Brandon, Thompson and Selkirk.
Ndinawemaaganag Endaawaad Inc.
