This is Abilities Manitoba’s proposed action plan for Manitoba Family Services to address the five (5) priorities arising from the Spring Stakeholder Engagement Process, an inclusive planning process informed by over 750 people. The Spring Stakeholder Engagement Report clearly outlines what needs to change to strengthen services funded through Community Living disAbility Services and to ensure the sustainability of the overall service system. Abilities Manitoba has called upon the Minister of Manitoba Family Services to commit to act now to ensure the long-term sustainability of services upon which so many depend. The implementation of an action plan that includes change outcomes, adequately resourced strategies to achieve the outcomes, and clearly identified and time-bound deliverables, is necessary.
Abilities Manitoba is committed to working in partnership with the Province in the implementation of the action plan.
