Find 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 of French services 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, Santé en français seeks to update and formalize the designation system for francophone and bilingual health and social services facilities in Manitoba. Santé en français is currently working with the Francophone Affairs Secretariat to develop the appropriate protocol in this regard.

In 2013, the Bilingual and Francophone Facilities and Programs Designation Regulation was adopted along with an accompanying regulation within the Regional Health Authorities Act (131/2013).
