  • Print

Prof. Kim Clare, the longtime director of the University of Manitoba's inner city social work program, has died.

Clare died Feb. 18 of cancer, the U of M reported on its website.

"The loss for the profession of social work, the Faculty of Social Work at U of M, the wider university community, and particularly Winnipeg’s Aboriginal and North end communities is immeasurable," said a university official.

Clare was named director of the inner city program at The William Norrie Centre on Selkirk Avenue in 1993.

Clare taught and advised thousands of students in the inner city and master’s programs, said U of M. She was a founder of the Legal Help Centre, and has been part of an ongoing research project exploring the impact of the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry Child Welfare Initiative on Child and Family Services in Northern Manitoba.

A celebration of her life will be held Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at Meadowood United Church at 1111 Dakota St.
