The Winnipeg Police Service continues to receive reports of a targeted scam that is believed to be targeting local phone numbers. A scammer will call a victim purporting to be a criminal investigator, and that money is owed to the Canada Revenue Agency.

Dear Minister Schulte and Minister Champagne,
RTOERO is a bilingual trusted voice for healthy, active living in retirement. With more than 81,000 members in districts across Canada, we are the largest national provider of non-profit group health benefits for education community retirees. We serve members who are retired from the early years, schools and school boards, post-secondary and the broader education community.
It’s a Celebration not a Cancellation!
June 1st is the 10th anniversary of Intergenerational Day Canada, a call for each of us to take one small step towards connecting generations respectfully. The day is recognized by the provincial government of Manitoba and over 100 other Canadian cities, provinces and territories. Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick and the Toronto District School Board have all committed to the day ‘in perpetuity’. Canada you can do this too!
How we honour and reflect on our aged today will determine tomorrow how our youth view ageing and their role as caregivers.
Do one small thing on June 1st 2020 to open communication with another generation. Show seniors that you see them as individual human beings who, like all of us, have a desire to be included and valued (intergenerational.ca for ideas and resources). Twitter: @i2iSociety
