The Catholic Health Alliance of Canada (CHAC) has been working over the past two years on an initiative to demonstrate the strength and role Catholic Health Care plays throughout Canada. The Executive Director of CHAM is a member of the task group assisted to work on the implementation strategy. A Leaders Forum will be taking place on May 9th in Niagara Falls comprised of CEOs, Directors of Communication, Mission and HR to assist the task group in refining the strategy.
After the conference, the task group will continue to work together to create material and templates that will be available to all Catholic Health Care facilities in sponsors via the chac.ca website.
Value of Faith Based Healthcare
CHAM in partnership with the Interfaith Healthcare Association of Manitoa is in the process of hiring a writer to assist in developing material that will
raise awareness of the value and role of faith-based health care in Manitoba. We hope to have the content completed before summer with a roll-out of some of the tools in September.
Sisters Legacy of Care, Courage and Compassion
From March 2015 to February January 2017, CHAM led an initiative that acknowledged, commemorated, and celebrated Manitoba’s Women religious who have served and continue to serve in our communities. We invite you to click on the following link to learn more, read testimonies, view photos, and appreciate all the work the Sisters have done for people in need since 1844. www.sisterslegacy.ca
