Up to 45 youth and community members from First Nations communities will be attending every Bombers home game during the upcoming 2017 season.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, in partnership with Perimeter Aviation and Exchange Income, will be flying in their guests on a private chartered plane, giving them tickets to a game, food and hotel as well as a meet and greet with players afterwards.
14 different communities will be taking part this year; St. Theresa Point, Garden Hill, Red Sucker Lake, Wasagamack, Oxford House, God's Lake Narrows, Gods River, Shamattawa, Norway House, Cross Lake, Sandy Lake, Lac Brochet, Tadoule Lake and Brochet
All communities will attend a draft dinner later this month, to determine the schedule of games and distribution of the tickets.
In addition, Bombers players will be visiting one of the communities next spring to deliver the Blue Bombers Care school program.
The visit will be modeled after the visit earlier in the year to Thompson and Wabowden.
