CancerCare Manitoba is the provincially mandated cancer agency tasked with providing cancer services to the people of Manitoba. CCMB is responsible for providing care, treatment and support across the entire cancer service spectrum – from prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and care, and palliation or end of life care.
With the valued support of stakeholders such as Manitoba Health, CCMB works and collaborates closely with partners to bring the best of cancer care to Manitobans. Our partners include Manitoba’s regional health authorities, the University of Manitoba’s Department of Medicine, Diagnostic Services Manitoba and volunteer funding agencies, in particular the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
CCMB has two tertiary locations in Winnipeg. Our main site is located on McDermot Avenue at the Health Sciences Centre campus. Our second is located at the St. Boniface Hospital. Through partnerships with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA), CCMB specialists work in concert with colleagues at six sites in Winnipeg, including the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant Program and Radiosurgery Program at the Health Sciences Centre.
Outside of Winnipeg, through partnerships with 4 regional health authorities, CCMB provides community based cancer services through the Community Cancer Program (CCP) Network at 16 locations across the province, and cancer support services through a community resource centre in a 17th community, bringing care closer to home for those that live in rural Manitoba.
In partnership with the Prairie Mountain Health Authority, the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre offers residents of Brandon and western Manitoba access to a state-of-the-art facility that provides radiation therapy as well as chemotherapy and support services.
In addition to serving the province of Manitoba, CCMB also provides some services for populations in the adjacent jurisdictions of Northwestern Ontario, Nunavut, and Saskatchewan.
CancerCare Manitoba currently employs over 800 staff members and 48 physician specialists, and has an annual operating budget of $102.2M.
