Income Support Program for Persons with Severe and Prolonged Disabilities

On April 26, 2021 the Manitoba government introduced legislation that will create a new income support program for individuals living with severe and prolonged disabilities. This program would be separate and apart from the Employment and Income Assistance (EIA) Program and will include disability support payments and shelter assistance tailored to the unique and specific needs of persons with severe and prolonged disabilities.

The Department of Families began engaging with Manitobans in November 2019, and completed a second phase of engagement in February 2021. All public feedback will be used to form the next steps in the development of the new income support program.

We thank everyone that provided feedback on this topic. Results of this engagement are available at:
