SEED has made the difficult decision to close our office to the public in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Staff are still able to access to their email and voicemail messages. If you have any questions and are not sure which SEED staff member to contact, please leave a voicemail at 204-927-9935 or email info@seedwinnipeg.ca and your message will be forwarded to the appropriate staff member.

We will resume regular programming when we are informed by public health officials that it safe to do so.
