BeCause & Effect #20: Clare MacKay


Clare MacKay knows how and why people gather. The public spaces provided through The Forks in Winnipeg are world-class and bring in people from all over the globe.

Clare’s role as VP, Strategic Initiatives as well as Executive Director of The Forks Foundation has meant she’s front and centre of The Forks’ incredible growth for nearly two decades.

I sat down with Clare Mackay, to talk about The Forks’ evolution from ancient meeting place to its modern model of success, the issues facing our city and what we can do, and the value of partnership and cooperation.
