Who we are
The Catholic Health Association of Manitoba (CHAM) is a voluntary, provincial association dedicated to the healing ministry of the church. Affiliated with the Bishops of Manitoba and the Diocese of Churchill-Hudson Bay, Northwest Territories, CHAM serves as a link between Catholic Health care facilities, agencies, parishes and individuals. CHAM serves as a provincial resource for its members and all those interested in its mission.
CHAM leads by example, and our presence, shared values and initiatives influence the way health and human services are delivered in Manitoba.
Inspired by the Gospel and grounded in shared beliefs and values, CHAM is a forum for Manitoban Catholic health and social service organizations to exchange ideas, and develop shared strategic initiatives that support our collective ability to strengthen the healing ministry of Jesus.
