CancerCare Manitoba must find 2.5 Million in Cutbacks

The agency that provides cancer services in Manitoba is cutting back on inter-provincial staff travel and limiting its involvement with professional associations.

 

CancerCare Manitoba learned it would need to find 2-point-5 million dollars in annual savings due to the province's financial situation.

A spokeswoman says the agency will be relying more on M-B-Telehealth and stepping back from professional associations and networks that charge fees for membership.

She says CancerCare will also save by no longer filling vacant staff positions.
