Designated Bilingual or Francophone Health and Social Services Agencies and Facilities in Manitoba
Several agencies, facilities, programs, services and positions in Manitoba have been designated bilingual in order to facilitate the delivery of French language services in accordance with the active offer concept. The purpose of the designation is to identify key service points where there is a high demand for, and capacity to offer, French language services, and focus efforts to enhance this capacity accordingly.
The designation process
As the official representative of Manitoba’s francophone community in the areas of health and social services, the Conseil communauté en santé du Manitoba seeks to update and formalize the designation system for francophone and bilingual health and social services facilities in Manitoba. The CCS is currently working with the Francophone Affairs Secretariat to develop the appropriate protocol in this regard.
