CHCM Today


We strive to meet unmet needs in new ways.

Our heritage is filled with examples of heroic responses on the part of the founding congregations to the suffering and needs they saw around them everyday. CHCM is a catalyst in developing and implementing new and innovative responses to those in need today, as the many religious congregations did throughout history. We work in partnership with other agencies and government partners to identify unmet needs and collaboratively find solutions to address them. These are examples of our work:

Health Ethics Service

CHCM funds a Health Ethics Service that recognizes that complex health care decisions are not easy. Ethical issues can arise, for instance, when a person is no longer able to make decisions or choices; when the benefits of continuing treatment are not clear; or when there is conflict about what is “best” in a given situation. An ethics consultation is designed to assist patients, families and health care providers to identify, clarify and work through ethical concerns.

Projet Compassion Project

The Compassion Project aims to nurture and strengthen our ability to be vibrant signs of compassion and hope. We believe that when people are given opportunities to develop the qualities of compassion, empathy and kindness for oneself and others, a feeling of purpose, meaning and connection results. Each Compassion Project offering is designed to influence the creation of flourishing and sustainable organizations that are person-centered and enhance our spiritual and communal wellbeing. All board members, leaders, staff and volunteers of the Communities of Service are invited to participate in all Compassion Project initiatives.

The Provencher Project

The Catholic Health Corporation of Manitoba is championing two non-profit organizations that need new space to deliver much-needed programming to people in need. We are working with the community and governments to develop new space for the growing needs of Centre Flavie Laurent and Marymound’s Youth Addictions Stabilization Unit.

Square Angus Development

The Grey Nuns of Montreal have asked CHCM to redevelop a space – Square Angus – to be both a home for their aging congregation and to provide much needed housing for seniors in Montreal. That development is scheduled to open in late 2012.

    The Catholic Health Corporation of Manitoba (CHCM) has created a Board Development Fund as part of its commitment to providing ongoing support and training to its volunteer board members.
