Health services across Manitoba are provided in facilities located on the original lands of First Nations and Inuit peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. Manitoba’s health authorities respect that First Nations treaties were made on these territories, acknowledge harms and mistakes, and we dedicate ourselves to collaborate in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in the spirit of reconciliation.

We are here to Listen, Help & Support You

Visiting a health centre can often be a very difficult and stressful time - especially if English is not your first language or if you need to navigate an unfamiliar health care system. The Indigenous Support Worker Program  can assist you and provide peace-of-mind, knowing that your needs are being cared for in a culturally appropriate and culturally safe manner. If you are First Nations, Métis or Inuit, please self-identify at the admitting/reception area so that we can support you in your health journey.
