Reimagine Aging

Reimagine Aging

December 21, 2022

Aging – Is it the worst of times or the best of times?

How many times have you heard “Do it while you’re younger”, “Enjoy it while you can” or “Don’t get old”? Advertising and social media practically shoves youth and vitality down the throats of all viewers. While aging definitely offers its own challenges but maybe it’s time to flip the story and look at it a little differently.

This is why the Centre on Aging is hosting a free six-week program to help individuals re-imagine their own aging. This program offers the opportunity to discuss the perceived negatives of aging, how they affect you and those in your circles and give ideas on how to challenge them.

When: Tuesdays

Time: 3:00pm

Start Date: January 24th, 2023

End Date: February 28th, 2023

To register for the program, sign up using the online form: or call Dallas

Make it About Memories, Not Money

July 05, 2018
  1. Grand Beach. This huge stretch of soft sand beach and sand dunes is only a one-hour drive from Winnipeg. This beautiful beach has been listed world-wide as an experience to be had and so many locals have yet to make the trip. It’s a great getaway for a day and offers camping, motels and cottage rentals for longer stays.
  2. Birds Hill Park. Located a very short drive from the city, this vastly under-utilized year round provincial park offers a slew of activity choices. Paved and natural trails allow for biking, rollerblading and hiking. There are horse stables and quite often Polo games are available for viewing. There is a campground with choices of basic, electrical or full service camping and a beach with food and beverage options.
  3. Little Limestone Lake. A little longer trip, but the closest to the Caribbean you can get when you don’t live near the ocean. It is the biggest and best marl, colour-changing lake in the world.
  4. Whiteshell Provincial Park. Part of the Canadian Shield landscape about 1.5 hours east of Winnipeg, is a treasure trove of natural resources. This park is filled with wildlife as the wilderness is quite undisturbed. If you’re looking to spend time at the lake, there are beaches, waterfalls, rapids, diving, sailing, swimming and waterskiing as just a few choices.
  5. Assiniboine Zoo. An absolute gem located right within the city and one of the most beautiful urban parks the zoo offers a plethora of experiences for young and old. Right now you have the chance to see the incredibly endangered snow leopards. The two little cubs are just settling into their new enclosure and are still awaiting their names. Included in the regular admission this summer, the new attraction Xtreme BUGS is being offered for a limited time. One of the biggest attractions, literally, is the polar bears whom you can see in action without travelling to the North.

This is such a small sampling of the destinations available in Manitoba. If you love to travel and experience the outdoors, this is a great place to do it without having to hurt your wallet. Now, get out there and experience all there is to do in Manitoba!

Wawanesa Insurance Walk To Fight Arthritis

September 20, 2016

YourStyle Financial was at the Wawanesa Insurance Walk to Fight Arthritis in Winnipeg on Sunday, June 5, 2016! The Walk to Fight Arthritis stretches across Canada to unite families, friends and organizations to achieve one common goal: to help the over 4.6 million Canadians, who live with arthritis every day. This figure includes more than 200,000 Manitobans, from infants to seniors. Arthritis has no cure. The Arthritis Society builds awareness and raises funds for arthritis research. Fundraising for the Walk also permits The Arthritis Society to keep providing vital programs and services that enable people with arthritis to live well at home, work and play. “We are grateful for YourStyle Financial’s support of the Walk,” says Donna Wills, Regional Manager for Manitoba/Nunavut.  “YourStyle sponsored the event, helped promote the event in their newsletter and entered a very energetic team! They were among the almost 500 walkers who raised nearly $65,000 for, The Arthritis Society, Prairie Division – Manitoba/Nunavut. THANK YOU YourStyle!”
