The 5th Annual Future Leaders of Manitoba Awards was held at Fort Garry Place Thursday night.

These awards recognize Manitoba’s best young talent organized by the Future Leaders of Manitoba Council with the support of the Business Council of Manitoba, Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce and Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.

The winners were:

  • Business/Professional: Michael Embury, the diversity coordinator for Manitoba Public Insurance. He has made a name for himself in the community working with the disability community, Aboriginal organizations and organizations supporting new Canadians. He sits on the board or steering committees of six organizations in Manitoba and is involved in multiple volunteer activities including the Manitoba Employment Equity Practitioners Association to the Urban Circle Training Centre.
  • Community Service: Christine Cyr is the program coordinator for aboriginal recruitment at the University of Manitoba. She is active as a mentor and leader for Manitoba youth working with the Post-Secondary Club program for high school students who lack the preparation, motivation and support to pursue post-secondary education. Christine sits on several boards and committees, including the United Way, Career, Trek and Southeast Child & Family Services.
  • The Arts: Alan Greyeyes is the Aboriginal music program coordinator at Manitoba Music. He is the founding vice-chairperson of the Manito Ahbee festival and the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. He volunteers on the board of Aboriginal Music Manitoba where he founded aboriginal music week -- a popular, multi-genre festival that presents Native, Métis, Inuit and indigenous artists from across the world. Alan was instrumental in envisioning and creating the groundbreaking aboriginal music performers camp (or "AMP Camp").
