The Centennial Institute is a legacy initiative created by The Foundation to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
Primarily supporting the study of Canadian and Indigenous history with a Winnipeg and Manitoba focus, its mandate is to enrich the study of history with particular interest in human rights and the evolution of civil society.
An Interim Steering Committee is currently refining the mission and defining the governance structure. Ten graduate level scholarships are already in place. The Centennial Institute endowment fund will provide on-going discretionary revenues to support related projects.
