About this guide

Information you can use

To make the best use of health services available to you and your family, you need to know what those services are, how to find them and where to get more information.

That’s what this site is all about.

It answers questions about prescription drug coverage, injury prevention for an active toddler, care needs for an aging parent and more.

Better care sooner

When we need medical care, we want and deserve a health care system we can rely on.

Together with Manitobans, your provincial government is working to improve health care so the most up-to-date services are available – when and where you need them. At the same time, we are working to help reduce wait times and improve patient care by:

  • training and retaining more health care professionals
  • improving our existing health care facilities and building new ones
  • using innovative approaches to expand health care access for all Manitobans
  • investing in community health care and prevention
  • streamlining management, so every possible health care dollar goes to patient care
  • targeting funds to reduce waits in critical areas including cancer care, cardiac care, hip and knee replacement, cataract surgeries and diagnostic tests.

It’s about making sure all Manitobans get better care sooner.
