Wait Time Reduction Task Force - Public Consultations
The Wait Time Reduction Task Force was established to examine and address waits for emergency care and priority procedures such as surgeries and diagnostic tests.  

A public survey will open on April 3 and public consultations will be held in communities across the province.  Manitobans are encouraged to participate in these discussions and offer their input. Responses will be used to develop the recommendations of the Wait Times Reduction Task Force committees. 

The first public meetings about emergency services will be held in:

Hamiota – April 3, 6 to 8:30 p.m., Hamiota and District Sports Complex, 200 Maple Dr. E.
Dauphin – April 4, 6:30 to 9 p.m., St. Viator’s Roman Catholic Church, 307 Whitmore Ave E.
Swan River – April 5, 1:30 to 4 p.m., Swan River War Veterans Community Hall, 119 Sixth Ave. N.
The Pas – April 6, 1:30 to 4 p.m., Royal Canadian Legion Branch 19, Four Veterans Way (behind the Wescana Inn); and
Thompson – Friday, April 7, 2 to 4:30 p.m., multi-purpose room, Vale Regional Community entre, 274 Thompson Dr. S.

Additional community meetings for emergency services, as well as public meetings about surgical and diagnostic wait times, will be held later in April.  Information about those meetings will be posted at as it becomes available.
