The Minister of Health, in accordance with provisions of The Regional Health Authority Act, appoints directors to each Regional Health Authority (RHA) Board. The appointments represent a broad cross-section of interests, experience and expertise with a single common feature of strong commitment to enhancing the health system and improving health for Manitobans.

The directors are selected from nominations elicited from a wide range of individuals and organizations interested in and involved with health services. Geographic representation is considered when making the appointments. Efforts are made to have the boards reflect the population they are appointed to serve.

Any resident of a health region may, for the board of the regional health authority for that region, nominate a person or persons, including himself or herself.   For more information on being a board member or to access nomination forms, please click HERE.

Board meetings are open to the public (except in camera portions) & will rotate between the Region’s major centres. Members of the public wishing to attend should pre-register with Nicole Daneliuk by emailing her at ndaneliuk@nrha.ca or by telephone 204-687-3010. The Board will utilize Microsoft Teams to reduce travel during the winter months & support Board members by making it easier to attend Board meetings closer to their home community.
