Formerly known as the Jaycees and the Winnipeg Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Winnipeg chapter was established in 1923, making us the oldest chapter in Canada and Winnipeg was the first chapter formed outside of the United States. JCI Winnipeg (Jaycees) has been in continual existence for over 84 years.
Comprised of young professionals and entrepreneurs between the ages of 18-40, JCI members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including but not limited to: business owners, managers, accountants, sales professionals, financial analysts, journalists, lawyers, doctors, dentists, students, and so on.
Our mandate is to provide our members with opportunities for professional and personal development, networking, camaraderie, and to instil in our membership a sense of local and global responsibility.
Our frequent events and seminars focus on delivering value to our members and fulfilling our mandate. Our activities include: leadership speaker series; seminars on such topics as (to name only a few examples) business etiquette , time management, public speaking, conducting effective business meetings; fundraising for charity; our annual golf tournament and gala dinner and dance; and hosting and running the Power Smart/Winnipeg Jaycees Santa Claus Parade.
