WRHA Indigenous Health strongly encourages that our health-care providers utilize our Interpreter/Resource Workers for exchanges of information between medical staff and patients. This is to ensure information given is relayed accurately and thoroughly and that a patient’s right to confidentiality is respected. Please call our central intake line to make arrangements for an Interpreter/Resource Worker or call the patient’s assigned worker.

Traditional Territories Acknowledgement
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority acknowledges that it provides health services in facilities located on the original lands of Treaty 1 and on the homelands of the Metis Nation. WRHA respects that the First Nation treaties were made on these territories and acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to collaborate in partnership with First Nation, Metis and Inuit people in the spirit of reconciliation.
