Our Region

The Northern Regional Health Authority (Northern Health Region) was created in 2012 through the amalgamation of the NOR-MAN and Burntwood RHAs. The Northern Health Region is geographically the largest of the five RHAs in the Province of Manitoba.

The Northern Regional Health Authority acknowledges that we are situated on Treaty 5, 6, and 10 Territory and that Manitoba is located on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininew, Denesuline, Nehethowuk, Ininiwak, Nêhiyawak Nations. We acknowledge that Manitoba is situated on the homeland of the Red River Métis. We respect waters, land, histories, language and cultures of First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose presence enriches Canadian society.

We respect and acknowledge that we are all connected through the Spirit and Intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in collaboration and partnership that will encompass equity, justice, truth and reconciliation. The term “Indigenous” means First Nations, Métis, and Inuit inclusively. We acknowledge the unique status of Indigenous Peoples in Manitoba and Canada.

Within the Region there are:

  • 2 cities (Thompson and Flin Flon)
  • 6 towns (The Pas, Gillam, Grand Rapids, Leaf Rapids, Lynn Lake, Snow Lake)
  • 1 Rural Municipality (Kelsey)
  • 1 Local Government District (Mystery Lake)
  • Multiple hamlets and cottage settlements making up “unorganized territories”
  • 26 First Nations communities (most of which have adjacent non-treaty communities)
