Heather Stefanson’s PCs have cut health care recruitment funds by over $38 million dollars over the past seven years. That’s why we have a health care staffing crisis.

Facts about Stefanson’s Record:

  • Stefanson cut the $4.2 million rural physician recruitment fund - that’s over $25 million cut from the budget since;
  • Stefanson underspent the physician recruitment fund by $13 million dollars since 2016 while cutting the budget; and
  • Stefanson refused to allow nurse practitioners to access the nurse recruitment fund.

It’s clear Stefanson’s only plans are for more cuts to health care - she broke health care and can’t be trusted to fix it.
Will Heather Stefanson’s PCs tell Manitobans why they cut $38 million dollars since 2016 from health care recruitment funds?
