Practicing in Manitoba

Manitoba is a unique, rewarding and sometimes challenging province with diverse opportunities for healthcare practitioners.

Whether you’re looking for an urban centre, remote northern communities or rural cities or towns, Manitoba can fit your lifestyle.

Both Winnipeg and Brandon boast large tertiary and trauma centres alongside private and family practice clinics, while many smaller communities across Manitoba provide primary and tertiary care for large geographical areas which surround them.

We also offer many specialized treatment areas and medical centres:

Birthing and Women’s Health
Manitoba Health is currently developing its birth services offering. Birth centres provide choice and alternate methods of birth including free-standing, adjacent to hospital, and midwifery-led ‘home-from-home’ units.

A free-standing birth centre is now open in Winnipeg, the first of its kind outside of Quebec. The centre is a collaborative effort between the Women’s Health Clinic and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, supported by Manitoba Health.

The Blueprint
As the baby boom generation continues to age into retirement, Manitoba is anticipating a change in health care needs. The Blueprint was developed by Manitoba Health and Healthy Living and Seniors in collaboration with key stakeholders such as provincial committees, government departments, regional health authorities, private agencies, community groups and health care providers.

The five-year plan focuses on matching the needs of individuals and their caregivers with local supports to help avoid unnecessary loss of independence and quality of life through premature admission to PCHs and hospitals. It will also build and support a more sustainable health care system. Change is critical to deliver care and services that improve the lives of Manitoba seniors and other with chronic illnesses and disabilities.
