Who are we?
The Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals (MAHCP) is a union of approximately 6,500 members. MAHCP represents 85% of Allied Health Professionals in Manitoba, working in more than 160 disciplines in health care settings across the province. The union is governed by an Executive Council of elected members and led by President Bob Moroz.
What do we do?
MAHCP is a union of health care professionals dedicated to protecting, advocating for, and advancing the rights of its members through labour relations activities. Our vision statement is to increase the awareness and recognition of MAHCP to members, the public and government.
When did we start?
The Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals was founded on Oct. 22, 1970, at the Winnipeg General Hospital with 74 members of the Manitoba Association of Medical Laboratory Technologists (MAMLT). The union grew in membership numbers due to workers in other professions joining, so in 1975 the name was changed to the Manitoba Paramedical Association (MPA). As more professions joined the MPA ranks, the Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals name was adopted in 1985 to better reflect the varied membership.
Where are we located?
The MAHCP office is located at 101-1500 Notre Dame Ave. in Winnipeg, postal code R3E 0P9. The main office phone number is 204-772-0425.
