Strong Girls, Strong World Winnipeg announces deadline extension for volunteer council members
October 30, 2015
Application deadline has been extended to Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Strong Girls, Strong World Winnipeg (SGSW Winnipeg) is a program dedicated to fostering leadership in young women, non-binary, and trans* teens aged 16-19, residing in Winnipeg. SGSW Winnipeg is interested in supporting those whose voices are often not heard to develop the ability to become self and/or community advocates. As a charitable organization dedicated to the health and well-being of people and communities, the YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg is committed to the development of girls in spirit, mind, and body.
The council will determine its own activities, goals, meeting frequency and workload. The pre-determined topic for SGSW Winnipeg is Intimate Partner Violence. Council members may choose to work on projects pertaining to surviving abuse, peer support, healthy relationships, or raising awareness of abusive relationships and sexual violence. Applicants should be aware that possible presentations, projects, and workshops by guest speakers may contain themes of relationship abuse, sexual violence, mental illness, and sex education.
Members of the girl council will:
- Discuss intimate partner violence and determine their own forms of activism and social innovation needed in order to combat it
- Receive mentorship and peer to peer support in a safer space environment* in order to achieve their goals
- Learn how to develop and implement their own social innovation projects
- Become familiar with local resources available for young women
Potential candidates should:
- Be interested in fostering and developing their leadership skills
- Have an understanding of women’s rights issues, or an interest in learning about women’s rights issues.
- Have an interest in creating social change
- Commit to meet in the evening every 1 – 2 weeks

The public is invited to the City of Winnipeg’s Pacific Avenue 4R Winnipeg Depot Open House
October 19, 2015
|When:||Wednesday, October 28, 2015
4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
|Where:||Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex
999 Sargent Avenue
By participating in the open house regarding the new Pacific Avenue 4R Winnipeg Depot; you will have an opportunity to learn more about the new depot and provide feedback in this important discussion.
City Council approved a comprehensive waste management plan in October 2011, designed to keep more than half of our garbage out of the landfill by giving Winnipeg residents more ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
The plan includes the construction of up to four “one-stop shop” community recycling centres, called 4R Winnipeg Depots. Residents can drop off material that they no longer have use for, but could be recycled, reused, composted, or resold.
The Pacific Avenue location will be the second 4R Winnipeg Depot in the city and is expected to open in late 2016. The first 4R Winnipeg Depot is expected to open in late 2015 at the Brady Road Resource Management Facility.

Rhonda Forgues (ARD), Chris Lagimodiere, Jacqueline Lylyk (ARD)
As our team showed support to the youth graduates of the Eagle’s Nest program – funded by Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak – little did they know they were going to bump into our old friend, Chris Lagimodiere.
For nearly two years, Chris oversaw the Turtle Island Neighbourhood Centre pilot project for Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak as a Recreation Technician E.
“Chris was a valuable member of our team and we all miss him. It was good to see him again and hear everything is going well for him.” – Rhonda Forgues, Manager of the Aboriginal Relations Division.
Chris now works with the University of Manitoba.
