Prime minister and Manitoba premier announce $633M in health funding

Manitoba and Ottawa announced a deal Thursday to infuse $633 million into the province's health system, much of which they say will go toward hiring more front-line workers and improving care for seniors.

Almost $434 million is through a bilateral agreement to support Manitoba's three-year plan to improve health care. It's the seventh such deal to be signed between Ottawa and the provinces and territories.

The governments say the funding is to support Manitoba's goal to hire 400 more doctors, 300 more nurses, 200 paramedics and 100 homecare workers. The provincial and federal governments also say they are also working to remove barriers for internationally trained doctors and health professionals to practise in Manitoba.
