Funding excellence in child healthcare and research
The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba exists to improve the health of children everywhere by inspiring our community to support excellence in child health and child research. We are passionate about increasing the quality of life for infants and children.
Building a new heart centre for Manitoba kids
In Manitoba, a new Children’s Heart Centre is needed. The original Children’s Heart Centre, built in 1987, was originally set up to handle 1800 patients but now handles a patient load of 6000 in its cramped space.
With your support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, a new Children’s Heart Centre can be built in Manitoba’s Diagnostic Centre of Excellence Building – an optimal location connected to Cardiac MRI, the paediatric intensive care unit, and other essential services.

Home to a world-class research facility
The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba is home to the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM). At the institute, more than 270 world-class medical researchers, technical staff, students and support staff are involved in nearly $20 million of research and clinical trial activity each year. CHRIM is the only research facility dedicated exclusively to paediatric research in the prairie provinces. It’s the headquarters for some of the leading allergy and asthma research being done in Canada.
The Centre for National Information
Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids (Trekk) is an online database doctors can access to find the best, up-to-date information available about paediatric emergency care across the country. Thanks to donations, the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba is proud to have supported the establishment of Trekk.
Enhancing how we care for children
Thanks to your support, we continue to advance and expand services and facilities at the Children’s Hospital. In 2019, a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will open. A new Cardiac Centre will be built to assist over 6,000 kids, and a new indoor-outdoor space will be added to our Child & Adolescent Mental Health Unit. All of these things are happening because you took the time to care.
