Kevin brings a commitment to community and leadership development through his dedication to education, training, and employment.

“I was fortunate to find a sense of belonging when I was growing up in Winnipeg’s North End.  Let’s celebrate a place that does that – where people look beyond challenges to embrace the gifts and talents of our youth.”

Born and raised in Winnipeg’s North End, he has considerable public sector and community experience. He served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, representing Point Douglas, and was appointed to Cabinet as Minister of Children and Youth Opportunities in 2012, Minister responsible for the City of Winnipeg in 2013, and Minister of Jobs and the Economy in 2014. Following public service, Kevin was the Vice President at the Business Council of Manitoba. Chief is the co-founder of the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre.

Kevin and his wife Melanie have three young sons: Hayden, Kellan, and Daxton. He is also known as a high steppin’ square dancer as a part of the Norman Chief Memorial Dancers.


Performance by Sierra Noble:

The evening will include an exciting live performance by Sierra Noble.


Sierra is a Winnipeg singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, who released their first album of traditional Métis fiddle music as a teenager, followed by the well-received Possibilities, and later, City of Ghosts. Over the course of these albums, Sierra honed their skills as a songwriter while garnering widespread attention internationally.

Meet our co-hosts:

The dinner will be hosted by Colleen Simard and Dale Turcotte.

Colleen is Anishinaabe, Cree, and Swedish. She was once a Rossbrook House participant. Today she is a volunteer Rossbrook H

ouse Board Director and is studying Fine Arts. She also is the creator of Littlefeather, a casual Indigenous clothing line.

“Co-hosting the event is an amazing way to give back and connect with young people like Dale, the staff of Rossbrook House, and the people that donate and believe in what Rossbrook House is doing for youth, families, and our city. I am humbled and honoured to be a co-emcee,” Colleen said.


Dale has been dropping in to Rossbrook House since he was 8 years old. Today he is 14 and is a proud member of the Junior Staff team, his first job.

“I spoke at the fundraising dinner in 2019, it will be a pleasant experience getting back up on that stage. Rossbrook House has been a second home for me ever since the day I stepped in those doors as an 8-year-old kid,” Dale said.

The pair will help to bring Rossbrook House to the venue, as they share their stories and experiences.
