A Note to Parents
Whether you realize it or not, all children can be at risk of joining a gang. As a parent, you have a lot more power than you think to prevent your child from joining a gang. Click our WARNING SIGNS or WHAT PARENTS CAN DO and the interactive video: 10 FACTS, so you can be more aware. 

What is a Gang
According to the Criminal Code of Canada, a gang is an ongoing organization, association, or group of three or more individuals, whether formal or informal, which is involved in criminal activity or suspected criminal activity on a regular basis.

Most gangs in Winnipeg are made up of young adults (although gangs have been known to use elementary-aged children if it works to the gang's advantage).

Typically, Winnipeg gangs do not wear uniforms or colours. They do not have a particular area of the city they call their "turf" - they operate city-wide - in every community. If you see graffiti in your neighbourhood it does not necessarily mean you have a gang problem. Generally, gangs do not "advertise" with graffiti.

The primary criminal activity gangs use to financially support themselves is selling drugs. Crack cocaine. Ecstasy. Crystal Meth. Marijuana. And many other drugs. Other crimes may involve credit card skimming and weapons-related offences. The main reason gangs exist is to make money and maximize profits for established members. Gangs use violence to enhance their position and reputation to further their criminal enterprisesWarning_Signs.htmlWhat_Parents_Can_Do.htmlshapeimage_2_link_0shapeimage_2_link_1shapeimage_2_link_2
