About Us

A group of community minded individuals, organizations and businesses have joined together in an effort to make an impact on the lives of at-risk youth in Selkirk Manitoba. This program referred to as SYFI (pronounced sci-fi) and known as the Selkirk Youth Fishing Initiative, will introduce local youth ages 12 - 18 to the sport of fishing. It will involve an educational and hands on experience through a series of scheduled fishing days throughout the year in both the summer and winter. Through the acquisition of equipment, SYFI wants to encourage these youth to fish whenever possible. Fishing can have a profound effect on people’s lives on many levels and nearly anyone, no matter age, income level or even fitness ability, can participate. Fishing can also provide an outlet for stress and anxiety that creates a sense of confidence, patience and promotes family bonding while respecting and appreciating our environment.
