Beware of “Mixed-Model” Home Care in Manitoba

In September the Pallister Government announced its plans to implement a ‘mixed-model” home care system that smacks of privatization.

In the article The Politics of “Mixed-Model” Home Care, Mary Jean Handle and Christine Kelly, scholars in the Department of Community Services at the University of Manitoba warn that Manitoba’s home care services, described by Manitoba Health as “the oldest comprehensive, province-wide universal [home care] service in Canada” is not immune to the Pallister governments propensity to privatize.
