[Organization] Aging Manitoba Workforce
Manitoba’s and Canada’s workforces are rapidly aging. This is evidenced through demographic and socio-economic changes. With increases in lifespan, people are working past the traditional retirement age of 65 because they need, or choose, to work longer. As the older workforce (defined by this project as 45 years +) grows, it is increasingly important to understand the occupational health and safety challenges of an aging workforce and to develop plans to address them.
Contributing to the need for this project is the gap in available educational resources for older workers and their employers in Manitoba. This includes resources for combating age-based discrimination, or ageism, to create a healthy, inclusive, and diverse workplace culture.
The primary goal of Aging Manitoba Workforce is to develop an older worker e-learning resource centre to address the gap in educational resources. It is to help older workers, their employers, human resource professionals, safety and health practitioners and stakeholders maintain a safe and healthy aging Manitoba workforce. This includes resources for combating age-based discrimination, or ageism, to create a healthy, inclusive, and diverse workplace culture. Learn more
