Why become a member of Abilities Manitoba?

Membership in Abilities Manitoba affords agencies the opportunity to add their voice to those of most other agencies in our field. This in turn makes Abilities Manitoba a stronger advocate for the interests of the people we support.

Abilities Manitoba also provides networking opportunities for agencies facing similar issues. Even when distance prevents regular meeting attendance, meeting webcasts, minutes and other information are available to the entire membership, and we strive to reach out to the entire Province. Members also have the opportunity to partner with government personnel and third parties, forming working committees on particular interests and issues.

Who can become a member?

Membership is open to non-profit agencies that support our objectives and provide a service to Manitobans with intellectual disabilities (or intend to establish a service within a year).
Non-voting associate memberships are extended to related groups or individuals.

How does an agency become a member?

Agencies need to complete an application and, upon approval pay the designated annual membership fee. Fees are calculated based upon 0.04% of all CLdS funding. Agencies who do not receive CLdS funding but do deliver services to adults with intellectual disabilities are eligible for a full voting membership. Their membership fee is calculated based on 0.04% of their Annual Budget.
