Who We Are

The Seniors and Healthy Aging Secretariat (SHAS) plays an important role in the provincial government’s commitment to promote respect, health, independence and well-being for all older Manitobans.

What We Do

As part of Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living, SHAS:

  • is a central information source for seniors and their families, caregivers, seniors organizations and government departments
  • helps the Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living ensure seniors’ needs are considered in all aspects of government policy, programs and law
  • encourages government, community groups and private businesses to work together for the benefit of Manitoba seniors
  • practical support to the Manitoba Council on Aging, a group that advises the Minister.
