Caregiver Advisory Committee

The Caregiver Advisory Committee provides the Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living with information, advice and recommendations about:

  • Caregivers and caregiver supports;
  • Programs, services, policies and legislation that relate to caregivers and caregiver supports; and
  • Promoting recognition and awareness of caregivers.

Since being appointed on April 3, 2012, the Caregiver Advisory Committee continues to meet regularly to review the latest research, discuss issues and identify potential solutions to issues including system navigation; access to information regarding programs and services; and communication between caregivers and health care professionals.  The Committee has invited key stakeholders to their meetings to inform their discussions and to provide additional perspective on caregiving issues.

In June 2013, the Committee hosted a unique roundtable on caregiving issues.  For the first time in Manitoba, key stakeholders from the aging, disability, chronic disease and youth field were brought together to discuss caregiver issues including areas that require improvements.  These discussions will help inform the Committee’s future work.
