In Manitoba eligible employees can access universal healthcare services through the Manitoba Health Services Insurance Plan (MHSIP). The Manitoba Health Services Insurance Plan is financed from general revenues of the Province of Manitoba and with funds provided by the Government of Canada.

When compared to their USA counterparts, Canadian employers pay less in the healthcare costs of their employees. According to the 2016 KPMG Competitive Alternatives report on business costs, USA employers pay 46% of their payroll in benefits compared to Canadian employers that pay only 35%. The report identifies private health insurance as the key driver of this cost for USA employers.
