April 1, 2022 marked the beginning of a new chapter for AFM as our organization began the operational steps to shift certain roles and functions under regional health authorities and transition operational responsibility to Shared Health and Service Delivery Organizations in the province.
These changes, as part of Manitoba Health System Transformation efforts and recommendations from the Virgo Report , are necessary to continue our efforts in supporting and strengthening local and provincial mental health and addictions service delivery for Manitobans.
To view current job postings in addictions and mental health, please visit the careers sections of Shared Health or SDOs throughout the province. Links to those career sites can be found below.
Shared Health brings together clinical experts from across the province to deliver a patient-centred, accessible, responsive health system that people can count on. Shared Health plans clinical and preventive services for delivery across the entire province, supported by centralized administrative functions that use human, capital and financial resources in the best way possible.
