Student Events

The IC organizes recreational activities and events throughout the year. 

Sports Nights: Learn about Canada’s obsession with hockey, watch a few U of M Bisons sports matches, meet some of U of M’s sports team members, or participate in a sporting tournament.

Fall Migration Tour: Manitoba is famous for its wildlife. The natural spectacle of the annual fall migration is an attraction for tourists each fall. Join the International Centre for an evening at the FortWhyte Alive Centre to watch as thousands of geese and ducks descend in the Centre’s lakes at dusk. Don’t forget your camera!

Arts and Cultural Events: Winnipeg has a world-famous ballet troupe (the Royal Winnipeg Ballet), a celebrated symphony orchestra, and a vibrant theatre and music scene that attracts local and touring performance groups. The IC organizes artistic and cultural outings to give students a chance to experience Winnipeg’s rich artistic community firsthand.

Snowshoeing:  Get out and try something new!  Each winter, IC takes students on an evening snowshoeing hike on beautiful wooded trails at FortWhyte Alive nature centre.

Ski Trip: The annual International Centre ski/snowboard trip to Holiday Mountain is held during Reading Week each February.  Always a popular event, students are encouraged to register early.

Day-Trips around Winnipeg and Manitoba:  Spend a day at The Forks market, try canoeing on the river, and join us for a trip to Winnipeg Beach, Opera Night, Stars on Ice or the Icelandic festival in Gimli. 

Many Events fill up quickly. Register Early to avoid disappointment.
