Manitoba’s competitive wage rates and high quality of life are due in part to the availability of comprehensive health and social benefits.

Manitobans are provided with hospital and physician care at no charge to employers or employees because of financial support from provincial and national health programs. Manitoba also has a pharmaceutical reimbursement program (Pharmacare) that contributes to costs above a basic deductible that are incurred by an individual or family for eligible prescription drugs during the calendar year.

The above programs are administered by Manitoba Health. For details on all of the programs and services of Manitoba Health click on the following link: www.gov.mb.ca/health

The Department of Families oversees a number of provincial social services, including child day care; family conciliation; employment and work programs and others. For details on all of the programs and services of Manitoba Family Services click on the following link: http://www.gov.mb.ca/fs
