Our Philosophy

The Manitoba Medical Service Foundation (MMSF) provides funding for the advancement of scientific, educational and other activities to improve the health and well-being of all Manitobans, focusing on support of new researchers.

The MMSF continues to be an important source of support for health-related research and education, in collaboration with other Manitoba organizations. We are inspired by the accomplishments of those who have received funding through the MMSF and their partners, and we look forward to continuing our mission of supporting health-related research and education in Manitoba.

Since 1971, the Manitoba Medical Service Foundation has provided over $20.6 MILLION towards furthering health-related research and education in Manitoba.


Without the aid and support of our funding partners, the MMSF would not be here today. We take this time to acknowledge all of our partners, chiefly Manitoba Blue Cross which supports us in spirit, with financial contributions and by providing administrative support. Manitoba Blue Cross is truly the Colour of Caring. Please see our partnerships page to note the organizations with which MMSF cooperates.
