GET CONNECTED

Get Connected to Community Resources

There are lots of resources available across Manitoba that can help people connect. System Navigators help find resources tailored to people's needs.

Why System Navigators? Sometimes it is hard to know how to find appropriate resources. System Navigators are people who can help find programs, resources, and services. System navigators receive training on how to provide individualized support to people living in Manitoba.
