Manitoba RHA Indicators Atlas 2009
Fransoo R, Martens P, Burland E, The Need to Know Team, Prior H, Burchill C

Life expectancy in Manitoba is up to 76.3 years for men and 81.5 years for women. That's the average length of life from birth, and it's based on Manitoba data for 2001 to 2005. According to the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy's Manitoba RHA Indicators Atlas 2009, the figures are up over the previous five years by more than half a year for both men and women.

Manitoba Child Health Atlas Update

Brownell M, De Coster C, Penfold R, Derksen S, Au W, Schultz J, Dahl M

It has often been said that one can measure how advanced a society is by how well it meets the needs of its weakest and most frail members. In Manitoba, we are fortunate to live in a society where considerable time and effort has been spent to improve the health of children. Policies and programs have been designed and put into place so that in theory, all children are born with an equal chance of being healthy. And for those children born into circumstances resulting in poorer health, programs exist which try to ensure that they eventually get onto a level playing field. All this work has resulted in children, for the most part, being healthy in Manitoba.
