Canadian News for Seniors

At the Long Term and Continuing Care Association of Manitoba (LTCAM), we are committed to keeping the seniors of Manitoba informed and empowered. That's why we regularly post Canadian federal press releases that directly impact the well-being and care of our senior community. By sharing these updates, we aim to provide valuable information on policies, programs, and initiatives that may affect the lives of seniors in our province. Staying up-to-date with federal announcements helps us advocate for better support and resources for our elderly population. We believe that informed seniors and caregivers make for a stronger and more resilient community, and our dedication to sharing relevant press releases reflects our mission to ensure the best possible care and quality of life for Manitoba's seniors.
