Active Aging in Manitoba (AAIM) is a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to the promotion of active aging opportunities for all older Manitobans to enhance their health, mobility, and continuing participation in their community.

AAIM strives for the life-long engagement of older Manitobans in healthy choices and behaviours that contribute to physical, social and mental wellness, independence and quality of life through staying socially connected, participating in regular physical activity, eating healthy foods and reducing risk for falls.

Active Aging in Manitoba encourages all older Manitobans to move more and sit less; to connect with and contribute their time, knowledge, and skills to their community; and, to strive toward optimal health for life. AAIM promotes and provides credible information resources, programs and services that encourage older Manitoban participation through peer volunteer leadership development, awareness and education on healthy active aging topics, and management of the annual Manitoba 55+ Games sport for life program.

AAIM continues to seek and develop collaborative opportunities with other organizations, agencies, and individuals to be inclusive and to ensure that every older Manitoban has an opportunity to be a participant in healthy active living.
