A.I.M. For Work

A.I.M. for Work is a community-based employment program for people with a chronic illness or physical disability. The program is funded by Manitoba Industry Training and Employment Services and the Government of Canada. The program provides medical and vocational case management services, which assists individuals with physical disabilities to successfully enter or re-enter the competitive Labor Market.

The mission of A.I.M. for Work is to promote the highest quality of employment opportunities for persons with physical disabilities by providing a full range of the highest quality Vocational Rehabilitation interventions available, with a special focus on Employment Services.

Manitobans with physical disabilities share many common concerns. They face emotional, social and economic disadvantages and barriers that prevent access to the same employment opportunities as other Manitobans. A.I.M. for Work focuses on assisting individuals with disabilities to prepare to find employment, further their education and fulfill their career goals by providing comprehensive, integrated and coordinated services.

The program provides services on a continuous basis to an average of 100 clients (combined Provincial and Federal eligible) clientele per year (12 month period). The project has been very successful in meeting its mandate. Since its inception, A.I.M. for Work staff has assisted individuals with disabilities to secure over 1,000 employment placements.

Red River North Trail

The Red River North Trail Association came together to develop a section of the Trans Canada Trail over 180 km  from the northeast outskirts of Winnipeg to Grand Beach/Grand Marais and includes the R.M.’s East St. Paul, Springfield, St. Andrews, Selkirk, St. Clements, Alexander & Brokenhead.

The trail travels north from the City of Winnipeg (at the perimeter and Henderson Hwy) to Birds Hill, along the floodway to cross the Locks and Dam at Lockport; North along River Road to Historic Lower Fort Garry; traveling through the City of Selkirk, crossing the bridge and  heading northeast through East Selkirk and Tyndall; turning north through the Mars Sand Hills, past Gull Lake, Beaconia, and the beaches—passing through Grand Marias, Grand Beach, and Lester Beach, through Belair, then traveling north to Traverse Bay, to turn South and meet the end of the Blue Water Trail., 3 km North of the Town of Stead.

The Red River North Trail is a recreational trail that will, for generations to come, preserve access to our varied natural landscapes; connect our local communities; promote awareness of our unique history, culture and heritage
