Our Pembina Trails Canada 150 Project is an exciting year-long calendar of events and projects that encourage our students to explore Canada’s significance on a global scale and be inspired in their own lives by the country’s past, present and future.

“We value being as diverse as all 36 million people that call Canada home,” says Superintendent Ted Fransen. “We are truly a global village. While our family roots may be planted elsewhere – we are grounded in Pembina Trails, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The purpose of this project is to unite.”

2017 is an incredible year of milestones including the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Selkirk Treaty, 100th anniversary of Vimy Ridge, 50th anniversary of the Canada Games, and the 30th anniversary of Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion World Tour. Pembina Trails Canada 150 Project wants to honour these historic events as well as focus on four key principles we recognize as cornerstones of what makes us who we are:

  • Belonging and pride

  • Civic engagement

  • Democracy and youth empowerment

  • Innovations in instruction and student learning

Things kick off this month with students across the division undertaking three areas of study: diversity and inclusion; environment and sustainable development; and reconciliation of indigenous and non-indigenous people. The next step will be for students to use their learnings from these themes to come up with a pledge that articulates how they will make Canada a better place.

We will turn these promises into a Pembina Trails Book of Pledges, which will travel across the division for individual events. We are also planning a relay and a final division-wide Canada 150 gathering at Investors Group Field.

“We believe education is intended to be transformative both personally and collectively,” says Fransen. “The intent of education is to improve the human condition both locally and globally and the Pembina Trails Canada 150 Project really aligns with this philosophy. Our future, where we are headed in the development of our communities and as a country, will depend on our youth. It is our belief that providing a memorable Canada 150 experience will deepen connections and expand minds for students to reach incredible potential.”

We want to thank the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for opening their doors and allowing us use of their field once again.  In 2015, we held our Human Rights event at Investors Group Field.  Learn more about that project here.
