Katlyn Streilein

The Metro community journalist - Canstar, Metro

Katlyn Streilein is the community journalist for The Metro.

She’s a recent graduate of Red River College’s creative communications program,and before that she studied rhetoric and communications at the University of Winnipeg.

A lifelong Winnipegger and recent North End transplant, she’s known to stop at every roadside attraction — to the dismay of her passengers — and can often be found on a last-minute visit to a local historic site, park or concert.

She loves to sit and read until her legs fall asleep, write until the words swim on the page and take photos until she runs out of film. Since 2019, Katlyn has been documenting the abandoned furniture of the city's streets, back alleys and boulevards as part of an ongoing photo project called Couches of Winnipeg.
