Give the perfect Christmas gift this season. Around the world, wells offer an alternative to often-contaminated river or pond water. MCC provides funding, while communities contribute labour and form teams to do basic maintenance and repairs. Purchase your Christmas Giving gift at or call 204-261-6381.

You are invited to join MCC in supporting the Government of Canada’s legislation around  the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), being tabled in Parliament this December. MCC believes that passing a legislative framework to implement UNDRIP is an excellent step toward ensuring the human rights of Indigenous Peoples are respected and honoured in Canada. 

If you agree, we invite you to contact Minister of Justice David Lametti and your MP to urge them to fulfill the government’s commitment to reconciliation by making every effort to bring this legislation to Royal Assent. Visit to use MCC’s convenient letter-writing tool to amplify the calls of Indigenous neighbours.
