The Interlake-Eastern RHA is designated as a bilingual regional health authority by the Province of Manitoba. St. Laurent, St. Georges and Powerview-Pine Falls in conjunction with the Rural Municipality of Alexander are areas of the region with concentrations of Francophones. Accounting for just over 1 per cent of the region's population, overall Francophone numbers are small but the region's Francophone population is vibrant.

Designated Bilingual Areas in Region

Two French Language Service coordinators work in the region out of offices based in St. Laurent and St. Georges. These French Language Service coordinators are linked to the region's Primary Health Care program. They participate in delivering services in French, connect Francophone clients to appropriate health services, promote active offer by our health care providers, promote staff language training, identify documents and resources for translation and represent the region on provincial French Language Service committees.

The Centre de Sante Communautaire de St. Laurent is a designated bilingual health facility and offers public health, mental health, home care, community wellness and nurse practitioner services. The Neil Gaudy five bed supportive housing is also located in the centre.

The Pine Falls Health Complex is a bilingual facility and offers acute care, primary care, and long-term care services. Home care, mental health, public health and community wellness services are available in the community.

A regional French Language Service committee includes a member of executive management and the two French Language Service coordinators. Two French Language Service advisory committees include community representatives to maintain awareness of issues and connections to Francophones.
