Manitoba wheelchair program in ‘critical position’ after denied funding boost

The non-profit runs Manitoba’s wheelchair program and is responsible for supplying and maintaining approximately 14,000 wheelchairs to users across the province.

‘Desperate plea’ made to minister last year: agency

11 July 2023

Winnipeg Free Press - The agency that provides wheelchairs to Manitobans warned the health minister last year the program was being “financially starved” and wait times would keep getting longer, especially in rural areas. Chartrand informed the minister the wheelchair program can’t fully function across the province, contrary to its mandate, because it hasn’t received a funding increase since 2011. The agency considered its January 2022 letter “a desperate plea” to the health minister, but has still not received a response, Cooke said. On Monday, a Manitoba Health spokesperson simply reiterated the previous statement, this time without any mention of the funding request. “As part of the 2022/23 budget, we increased ongoing funding to Manitoba Possible by more than $550,000, and the annual budget for wheelchair funding this year is $1,138,655.
