It’s faster, more attractive and tailor-made for the smartphones of today; MAHCP’s Executive Council and staff are proud to announce the launch of our new website!
The website, which has been under development for the past few months, boasts several amazing features for members, including:
Cutting-edge navigation: The MAHCP home page is now easier to use and set up to flow on smartphones, with links to news articles, collective agreements, calendar and social media pages at your fingertips.
Easy-to-search Collective Agreements: Our agreements have been updated for our online presence, with clickable sub-sections and a search bar for terms – cutting down on the time members spent trying to find what they’re looking for. PDF versions of the entire agreements are still there.
Fillable online forms: We’ve made as many forms as possible fillable online, so that members can avoid having to print. Once completed, the online fillable forms will be sent directly to our MAHCP staff.
Digital newsletters: View our online MAHCP newsletters in the most current magazine-style.
MAHCP President Bob Moroz said he’s looking forward to members trying out the updated site.
“I think our members are really going to like using their new website,” he added. “I am especially pleased with the much easier way to search the collective agreements and the fact that it works very well on any device.”
We at MAHCP would like to thank our partners in this project, Scout Communications of Alberta (OKD Marketing), for all their hard work to make this website a reality!
MAHCP members, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or feedback about the new site. Thank you!

Friesen told the Free Press Tuesday doctors will be expected to abide by a government policy that all public-sector workers undergo pay freezes for two years, followed by increases no greater than 0.75 per cent in the third year and one per cent in Year 4 of any collective agreement.
The legislative assembly passed Bill 28 to implement the government's public-sector pay regime in 2017. Doctors were included within the provisions of the bill. But the Progressive Conservatives have yet to proclaim it, so it is not yet law.
A coalition of 25 labour unions — not including Doctors Manitoba — is fighting the bill in the courts. A hearing is set to begin in November.
Manitoba's nearly 3,000 doctors will have to do their part to help the province overcome a stubbornly high operating deficit, Health Minister Cameron Friesen says. A four-year contract between the pro...

Nurses at the hemodialysis unit at St. Boniface Hospital have penned a letter voicing concerns over what they are calling a “very unsafe” situation for both patients and nurses.

“We have repeatedly asked our manager and director for a meeting to allow us to discuss our concerns and to come to a consensus for a way to move forward in this situation,” the letter, signed by 37 nurses, said. “Up to this point, those requests have been ignored.”
