THE RIGHT FIT FOR MANITOBA

Finding the right fit for Manitoba requires:

  • matching services to the current and future needs of the population, ensuring that some of our most vulnerable citizens have safe, reliable care, without unnecessary hardships such as multiple moves, or protracted wait times;
  • providing services in the communities and neighbourhoods where seniors and their families currently reside;

Finding the right fit for Manitoba requires:

  • learning from other jurisdictions, from industry stakeholders and from experience to constantly update and improve the model;
  • delivering all these components at a reasonable cost that is affordable to those who require care, and to taxpayers; ensuring that we are making the best use of our existing infrastructure while adjusting for long term needs.
