Tech-Ease is part of our community and we love to get together to talk and demonstrate various inclusive products. People share personal experiences and help one another by finding answers to their questions about these products.

Join our mailing list to ask questions and share information between events.
Send a blank email to virn-tech-subscribe@googlegroups.com

VIRN's Tech Team and the Tech-Ease community will help find the answers to just about everything related to inclusive technology.

Reminder Downtown Winnipeg Biz - Provide SafeWalk

Downtown Watch ambassadors provide SafeWalks for added reassurance for downtown workers, visitors and residents. When working late or leaving an event in the dark, some people find it intimidating to walk to their car or bus stop alone. The Downtown Watch are out on downtown’s streets to assist you, and welcome any calls for SafeWalks. For a SafeWalk, call the Downtown Watch at 958-SAFE (7233) or Downtown Winnipeg Biz SafeWalk

Sharing information and learning from people who use accessible tools and technology day-to-day?

Each month we will have a 20 minute presentation at 6:00 PM.

This month the presentation / discussion will be on using the iGrill
A handy device that takes away the guesswork when grilling or roasting.
Note: Please bring your own ear buds to all Tech-Ease drop-in sessions to help us eliminate distractions and interfering with each other.

Although it isn’t necessary, if you happen to have a question that may require some research on our part, let VIRN know a few days in advance. This will help us and make it easier to possibly bring someone in who could answer your question(s) or work with you on the device you have brought along.
