Stefanson Highlights Key Investments in The Pas

Redevelopment of Primary Health Care Clinic Puts Northern Health Care on the Path to Recovery: Stefanson

THE PAS — Manitoba PC Leader Heather Stefanson wrapped up her tour of Northern Manitoba this week highlighting the party’s plans to heal health care for those in The Pas and the North.

“Our party listens—to experts, and to local needs,” Stefanson said. “That’s why we invested $154 million in Budget 2023 for northern communities for primary care, for chronic disease services, and for addictions treatment.”

This year’s budget invested in capital and equipment priorities across the Northern Health Region, including $39 million for The Pas Primary Health Care Clinic. Planning and design work has already begun, with construction to start in 2024-25, Stefanson said.

The redeveloped clinic will provide much-needed infrastructure to deliver quality, accessible care to residents in the community and surrounding area, while also assisting with ongoing efforts to hire and retain health-care workers.

“This significant community asset will meet local health-care needs for years to come,” said Alan McLauchlan, PC candidate for The Pas-Kameesak. “We’re the only party in this election fighting for the North, and not taking the vote of Northern Manitobans for granted.”

During her visit to The Pas, Stefanson and McLauchlan also visited several community organizations and projects that have recently received funding from the PC government, including the Sam Waller Museum ($25,000) with The Pas Immigrant Services, Tribe Cable Park ($25,000), Roy H. Johnston Arena ($250,225), and Winton Pool ($300,000). 

They later made their way to University College of the North’s local campus, where the PC government has also made significant investments. Stefanson and McLauchlan concluded their tour at the Manitoba Métis Federation’s The Pas Region office, meeting with Vice President Judy Mayer, Minister of Constitution, Rights and Governance.
