It is an honour to serve as Minister of Seniors and Long-Term Care in the Manitoba egislature. As minister, I have a very focused agenda to implement all 17 recommendations of the Stevenson Report to assist seniors. I am committed to working collaboratively on our mandate to improve care in our personal care homes and build a stronger foundation for improved seniors care in Manitoba.

I would like to thank and acknowledge the key participants; health care consultants, personal care home operators and other staff involved for their planning, oversight and advice, development of practical resources and tools for implementation.

Our government recognizes the importance of these changes and commits to continued progress and sustained action. To read the Stevenson Report and view the progress update, please visit our website at:

I am pleased to announce that many organizations in my constituency have been the recipients of provincial grant allocations for their summer projects. I have also had the pleasure of visiting these sites to see their visions for the future in our community.

In Assiniboia, the Red River Exhibition Association received $242,000 towards the building of an Indigenous Village which is expected to be completed in September. The Assiniboia West Recreation Association received $11,902 for asbestos removal and new windows for its clubhouse. Sabha Singh Winnipeg received $226,250 to help construct an addition and make upgrades to its facility. The St. James Assiniboia Minor Baseball Association received $70,000 contribution for an upgrade to the Optimist Park facility, including building additional ball diamonds and dugouts. Congratulations to all recipients and I look forward to seeing your projects upon completion.
