Sharing in Success:
Working Together to Build PartnershipsTRCM_WFP 2015 Sharing in Success Cover

Humour. Who would think it’s the bridge we need to get us all talking? But for two Manitobans, one a stand-up comedian, the other a university professor, laughter is just the ticket for building healthier relationships and successful partnerships.

To profile how so many Manitobans are working together and achieving great things, the TRCM is excited to unveil its latest publication entitled “Sharing in Success, Working Together to Build Partnerships.”

While relationships between First Nations and non-aboriginals have not always been smooth sailing, there’s a renaissance underway in Manitoba and the best is yet to come as we strive to create stronger, more unified communities, together! If we do nothing else, we should allow ourselves to be led by our young people, many of whom are profiled in this magazine. Together, they are shaking the bonds of negativity and misunderstanding by drawing on our mutually shared and successful history together. In that, there is endless potential.
