At the September 11, 2014 Annual Report to the Community, SEED Winnipeg celebrated twenty years of creating social and economic community impact.
From humble beginnings in 1993, SEED has grown to serve over 2500 people per year. Always rooted in an aspirational vision of reducing poverty through the creation of economic opportunities, SEED has impacted the lives of thousands of individuals and families throughout Winnipeg over the last two decades.
SEED provides business consulting and training for low-income people who want to start their own business, as well as for social enterprises and worker co-operatives.
RESPs and the Canada Learning Bonds
Staff at SEED also promote RESPs and the Canada Learning Bonds so that low-income families are able to access financial benefits they are eligible for.
Asset Building Programs and Partnership
SEED also founded the Asset Building Programs and Partnership, where low-income individuals gain financial management skills and save to purchase key assets like education for themselves or their children, housing, basic furniture, or even start a business.
Diversity Food Services
Most recently, together with the University of Winnipeg Community Renewal Corporation, they created Diversity Food Services.
Assiniboine has been proud to support SEED Winnipeg from day one, and partner with them in many different ways over the years. We know the difference that they make in the lives of so many people in our community, and we congratulate them on this special anniversary!
