In the summer of 1967, Winnipeg, Manitoba was host to the Pan American games - the largest event to ever take place in the city of Winnipeg. In the lead up to the opening ceremonies, the Pan Am torch had to make its way from St. Paul, Minnesota to Winnipeg. As part of the torch run, organizers selected ten Indigenous runners to carry the flame on its final leg. All runners but one were selected from residential schools in Manitoba. The formal start of the run began on July 17, 1967, after the torch was lit on the steps of the Minnesota capital. Over five days, covering 500 miles and chaperoned by a State Trooper, the runners followed an old route used by Indigenous people to carry mail from the US to Canada.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its mission statement this year!

We are proud of the service accomplished to contribute to public safety and help offenders become law-abiding citizens.
