How to find a doctor in Manitoba

It’s important to visit a health care professional on a regular basis to get the necessary check ups that can help you stay healthy and informed about your health. Many people tell us that they don’t have a family doctor. The Government of Manitoba has set up a “Family Doctor Finder” that you can use to help find a health care provider.

Call 204.786.7111 (Winnipeg) or 1.866.690.8260 (toll free) to register for this service. You need to call between the hours of 8:30am to 4:30pm from Monday to Friday.

Talk to Aboriginal leaders in your community if you are interested in finding an Elder; they will usually know who can support you. If you’d like, here are some other resources that you can explore:
