LITE (Local Investment Toward Employment) is Winnipeg’s foundation dedicated to job creation for people that need a hand up into work and out of poverty.

“Most drivers know their vehicle’s ticket price, but far fewer have a grasp of just how much it costs them every year to drive their car or truck, said Kristine D’Arbelles of the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA).
