As the world of digital media evolves,  lots of us use online platforms to stay connected in real time to what’s going on outside of the office. Lucky for you guys, we’re on Twitter and unlike our monthly eNewsletter, we tweet all the time! Follow us for up to date info on training and funding opportunities, job postings, health promotion days, resources, and events going on around Winnipeg and beyond.

We’re always looking for resources and news to share, and to build new connections!

If you have information on planning and evaluation, or have a focus on healthy, sustainable communities, get in touch with Sara;, (204) 946-1888, ext 106. See you around the Twitterverse!
