2016 Flu Shot Clinics

The Province of Manitoba and the WRHA will be providing free flu shot clinics from October 25-27. This will help residents who do not have access to a doctor to receive flu shots, within their community setting.

The flu shot clinic for our area will be held at Win Garner (363 McGregor St) on October 26 (12:30-4:30) & 27 (2:30-6:30).

Alternatively, flu shots are available free of charge at pharmacies and Quick Care Clinics within the city. Please bring your Manitoba Health card when attending.

Community Survey

Hello residents!
We are planning to meet next year to decide the fate of our residents association. We are currently on pause to assess our need within the community. We love making our neighbourhood a better place to live, work, and play and we truly want to return to continue our goals.
I have created a survey to gauge our need within the community. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey to help us better understand what our residents require from us. This survey is completely anonymous and we do not require information from you such as your name, address, etc. Results will be reviewed and published on our website at the end of the year.
Thank you for taking the time to help us out. We’re looking forward to returning in the near future.

2015 Federal Election

On Monday October 19, Canadians will be heading back to the polls for the 42nd Federal Election. Voting will take place from 8:30AM-8:30PM, and your voting station location is listed on your voting card.

We are located in the Winnipeg North riding and the candidates are:

Kevin Lamoreux – Liberal
Levy Abad – NDP
Harpreet Turka – PC
John Redekopp – Green Party

There was an incredible turn out during advance polling – it was up 64% from the 2011 election. Due to the long lines experienced at the advance polls, please expect delays. This election has been an interesting one and people are looking for a change… do not let long lines prevent you from voting. Please note that if there are still lines at 8:30PM when polls close and you’re in line, polling clerks must still allow you to vote – it is the law.

“I haven’t received a voters card. Am I still eligible to vote?” If you did not receive a voters card, please visit the Elections Canada website to see if you are registered to vote. You can also add yourself to the voters list at the poll the day of the election.

Where is my polling station located?” Your polling station is located on your voters card. If you have not received a voters card, please visit the Elections Canada Website for instructions.

“Do I need photo ID to vote?” No. You can use photo ID, with your address listed, as ID to vote; however, you can use two other pieces of ID and that list is on the Elections Canada website.

“Who is eligible to vote?” You must be 18 and over, a Canadian citizen, and prove your identity and address to be eligible to vote.

“Must my employer give me time off to vote?” By law, everyone who is eligible to vote must have three consecutive hours to cast their vote on election day. If your hours of work do not allow for three consecutive hours to vote, your employer must give you time off. For example, if you live in a riding where voting hours are 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and you usually work from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., your hours of work will not allow three consecutive hours for voting. To give you three consecutive hours to vote, your employer could allow you to arrive late (at 12:30 p.m.), let you leave early (at 6:30 p.m.), or give you three hours off at some point during the work day.  Your employer has the right to decide when the time off will be given.

Do we vote for Prime Minister on our ballot?” No. In Canada we vote for a representative of a political party in our electoral riding. The party with the most elected seats in the House of Commons will become the representing party in Canada, their leader will become Prime Minister.
