We can post your current Occupancy Status as often as you contact us. A link will take the reader to your profile. We also offer other marketing opportunities. A recent marketing campaign for a group of LTCAM members saw vacancies go from 40 to 5 in just a few months.
Members and their staff only are invited at no charge to attend workshops offered by commercial members and partners.
One of the highlights of the year is our Annual Provincial Conference and Exhibition which is held every year in May at the Victoria Inn and Convention Centre. This is a significant networking opportunity with over 750 attendees and Industry Leaders. The conference is an opportunity to highlight our issues and celebrate our progress after more than 50 years!
Annual Provincial Conference and Exhibition
Our Annual General Meeting and Wine and Cheese offers you unique insights into the association's activities throughout the year. Networking is a special feature of this event.
You will not want to miss our annual holiday gathering in November each year at Fort Gibraltar. There you will meet with Government officials, members and other organizations and associations that we work closely with.
Annual Holiday Gathering
The LTCAM plans a special Provincial Awards For Excellence ceremony at the conference every year. The ceremony is co-hosted by the Executive Director and a well know Manitoban. Award winners, care providers, peers and colleges, as well as family members are invited to enjoy the lunch and the ceremony.
Awards for Excellence
Resumes received at the LTCAM office, are forwarded to you for your present and future needs.
Ongoing Consultation & Collaboration
Our success depends on open and ongoing communication with you and other key stakeholders in the senior's care sector. The Association provides regular communication and progress reports and invites feedback on emerging issues.
Provincial: Our staff and Board of Directors have been very successful at making sure your issues are front-and-centre in Manitoba. We have met with Cabinet Ministers, senior health officials, and MLAs.
National: LTCAM serves on the board of the Canadian Association for Long Term Care. The Board Executive was in Ottawa recently and met with several MPs. We were well received; they asked for information and invited us to come and meet with them again.
In collaboration with our members and other health care stakeholders, the Association develops and implements individual initiatives that support our action plan goals. These have focused on the employee training, and inter-generational projects. We have released the report to the Minister of Health as well as many other consultations and reports that we have authored on behalf of our members and seniors in MB.
As the largest association representing the continuing care sector, we act as the industry voice in all regions of the province. Through news releases, consultations, committee work, written correspondence, and opinion pieces we are helping to communicate your priorities.
Our popular website and members-only section of the website are helping to raise awareness of the key issues facing our sector as well as offering you key insights on best practices.
When members are having issues with local health authorities or the government, our Association and Board of Directors are there to provide support.
Our members understand that there is strength in numbers and we make gains as a collective voice that individually would be very difficult to achieve.
