Who Are We?

Who are we?

MAHRC is a group of 21 health regulatory colleges with the mandate β€” β€œto regulate our respective professions in the public interest.” MAHRC and its member colleges work together to enhance public protection, advance healthcare regulation, and provide direction, expertise, and leadership on health and related public policy.

How long have we been around?

Manitoba’s health regulators have been working together since the 1990s. Initially, this was in response to the introduction of new legislation or regulatory reform initiatives that would impact all regulated health professions. The proclamation of The Regulated Health Profession Act in 2010 created a common regulatory structure and framework for all regulated health professions in Manitoba and provided opportunities for collective conversations, coordinated responses and greater collaboration amongst Manitoba’s health regulators.

In 2023, MAHRC became incorporated and is now governed by a board of directors.

Why do we exist?

MAHRC exists to create and support opportunities where regulators can come together to collaborate and work towards the advancement of health regulation.
