Communication Devices Program

The Communications Devices Program (CDP) mandate is to ensure Speech Generating Devices (SGDs) are available and affordable to all eligible adults in the Province of Manitoba. Speech-Generating Devices are electronic communication tools that augment or replace spoken language.  SGDs can support increased independence and quality of life for individuals with severe communication impairments.

The CDP’s province-wide mandate is supported through funding provided by Manitoba Family Services and Consumer Affairs. The CDP began accepting referrals in spring of 2009. The CDP is housed in Deer Lodge Centre and is part of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority’s Assistive Technology Products & Services.  Telehealth is available to facilitate access to the CDP for all Manitobans.
