Manitoba office move

With new staff, we will also have a new home! As of July 4, the Manitoba/Nunavut office moves from downtown Winnipeg to Suite 100, 1465 Buffalo Place, where we will share common space with our colleagues at the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

“This is great news for our donors,” says Shirley Philips, Executive Director, Prairie Division. “With this move, rent costs are reduced by 65%. That means more efficient use of donor dollars. The new location will be easier to access and more secure.”

Donna Wills, Regional Manager Manitoba/Nunavut agrees. “Our volunteers and donors have shared how difficult it is to find parking downtown. Our new location offers free and accessible parking.”  The new Manitoba office will maintain current operating hours of 8:30am to 4:30pm and will keep the same phone number, 204.942.4892, toll-free 1.800.321.1433.

Watch for an Open House invitation coming this fall! We look forward to welcoming you!
