Keynote Speaker: Kyle Mason
The son of Indian Residential School Survivors, Kyle grew up in the North End of Winnipeg in a single parent family. Kyle's family struggled to make ends meet and often had to make use of food banks and other social programs.
After graduating from college with a theological degree, Kyle joined the pastoral staff of a church in Stonewall, MB. From there he moved to Ontario to provide leadership to a local food bank as it grew from renting a small space to becoming the largest food bank in the region. Kyle served on staff at a homeless shelter in Saskatoon before he and his wife moved back to the North End of Winnipeg in the fall of 2008. Soon after his return, Kyle began to lay the foundation for the North End Family Centre, which opened its doors to the community in October 2009.
Kyle is currently doing graduate studies in Non-Profit Management through Trinity Western University. In January 2013, Kyle received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for founding and leading the North End Family Centre. Kyle sits on national and local steering committees related to social justice, poverty, and aboriginal issues.
Kyle speaks often in churches, service clubs, and other events on issues related to social justice, God's love for the poor, and how anyone can make a difference. Kyle is passionate about motivating people to step outside their comfort zone and to serve people who can be overlooked in our society.
