On August 29, 1983, Manitoba Hospice Foundation was incorporated with the mission of supporting the terminally ill in Manitoba and promoting hospice palliative care awareness. Four decades later, Palliative Manitoba and its 160+ volunteers provide support, education, advocacy and resources to the dying and bereaved, their caregivers and families province-wide and we’re celebrating in a BIG way!

We are thrilled to announce the amazing folks at Johnston Group and Payworks have joined forces and will match any gift to the 40th Anniversary Campaign, up to $20,000 for a total of $40,000* in honour of our 40th!




And three brand new events have been scheduled to help the community celebrate along with us!

Thank you to everyone who helped kick off our 40th Anniversary by ‘Seeding our Future’ and purchasing their spring seeds at Ron Paul Garden Centre in support of Palliative Manitoba’s Endowment Fund.

On June 29, 2023 we held our very first Butterfly Release in honour of those loved ones who have died. 30 butterflies were set free to carry our love and best wishes in memory of the deceased in Bruce Park. The weather was beautiful and our little friends hung around for plenty of photo ops. We look forward to next year’s event!

Join us October 26th at the Viscount Gort Hotel in Winnipeg for an anniversary celebration like no other. Featuring the artistic talents and culinary delights of the Philippines, the Ukraine and Indigenous cultures, this event is sure to outshine anything else this fall!

*40th Anniversary Campaign funds will be endowed at The Winnipeg Foundation.
