Who we are: Active Aging in Manitoba (AAIM) is a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to the promotion of active aging opportunities for all older Manitobans to enhance their health, mobility and continuing participation in their community.

AAIM strives for the ageless engagement of older Manitobans in healthy choices and behaviours that contribute to physical, social and mental wellness, independence and quality of life through staying socially connected, participating in regular physical activity, eating healthy foods and reducing risk for falls.

In 1954, the City of Winnipeg was awakened to the needs of its most senior citizens. New developments in medicine had begun extending people’s life spans and increased the number of people living into their sixties and up – including a large ratio who came through the depression years when making or saving money was difficult. The Welfare Council of Greater Winnipeg undertook a major study of this new, older population. Prompted in part by the fact that Winnipeg’s aged population had almost doubled since 1941, the study was financed by The Winnipeg Foundation and was the first survey of its kind in any Canadian city. It was called Age and Opportunity, and became the agency’s namesake.

This survey found that two thirds of all older adults in the region were living on incomes considered marginal or less. Interviewers reported on poverty, loneliness, and poor health in Winnipeg’s older adult population: “Some people spoke of being unable to afford glasses and hearing aids,” wrote one interviewer, “and that this cut them off from the world and likely produced the loneliness which was often noted.”

Creative Retirement Philosophy
People in all of their diversity have the right of access to education across their life-span. Lifelong learning promotes well-being intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually.

The well-being of individuals and the health of communities are interconnected. Retirement presents a creative opportunity for individuals to enrich their lives and that of their communities.

People involved in Creative Retirement are active in governing, shaping and delivering programs. Seniors have a very valuable role to play in their communities by sharing their knowledge and life experience.


To enrich retirement years with educational programs.

To make it possible for retired individuals to continue to be productive members of society by sharing their talents and skills, by facilitating courses or by taking part in our Seniors and Students Together program.

Caregiving with Confidence is a not-for-profit organization (formerly Rupert’s Land Caregiver Services) that started in 1984 as a mission of the Anglican Church. Since then it has evolved in to a dynamic organization that provides support services to caregivers in Winnipeg.

The majority of our financial support comes from the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) under the umbrella of Services to Seniors. Additional funding comes from the Diocese of Rupert’s Land and from generous donations from the community. We also receive support from St. George’s Anglican Church who provides us with office and meeting space

The Vision of the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability (ALACD) is a society where all Canadians lead active and healthy lives. When physical activity is in your life, health and wellness benefits are exhibited. The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a disability (ALACD) develops and disseminates resources and tools to help organizations to create inclusive opportunities and welcoming environments. Working in partnership with our member organizations, we assist them to fulfill their commitment to inclusion of people with disabilities.

Research tells us that while physical activity is important for everyone, it has increased impact on quality of life for people with disabilities such as;

  • Increased community participation
  • Improved self esteem
  • Increased strength to help cope with the daily stress of a disability
  • Reduces likelihood of acquiring a secondary disabling condition
  • Improved mental health and reduces isolation and loneliness.

To inform and educate Manitobans on transportation options that enhance quality of life and promote age friendly communities.
In 1999, a wide-range of community stakeholders concerned about the inadequacies of transportation options for older adults came together to form the Transportation Options Network for Seniors (TONS). Through the development of partnerships that facilitate information-sharing and awareness-building, the goal of TONS is to promote mobility resources that are affordable and adequate for the needs of older Manitobans.

TONS is a volunteer driven network that focuses on three main areas:

Community Outreach

Education / Awareness

Rural transportation

Future work of TONS will include:
Establishing community and stakeholder networks to facilitate information sharing and collaboration, and
Gaining greater information and insight concerning the experiences of seniors when transitioning from driving.
