WINNIPEG - Premier Heather Stefanson says new federal money for health care this fiscal year is not enough to make a major difference in Manitoba.
The province is expected to receive an additional $194 million in 2023-24.
Stefanson says her Conservative government will put the funding toward surgical and diagnostic backlogs, human resources, long-term care, home care, mental health and addictions.
She is to sit down with federal Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos before the end of the week to start negotiating bilateral agreements which is a separate stream of cash.
