Communities We Serve

Ancient boreal forests, unspoiled wilderness, spectacular northern lights… remote nursing is a unique opportunity to experience the power and beauty of Manitoba’s north, and to learn more about the proud and diverse cultures of First Nations communities.

Our nursing stations are well equipped to treat community members of all ages – from newborns to elders. English and aboriginal languages are spoken in the communities. Whenever an interpreter is needed, friends or family members are there to help.

A station may have from two to 12 nurses, depending on the needs and size of the community. All stations have 24-hour security, and community members provide reception, maintenance, housekeeping and community health support services.
