The Manitoba government recognizes the importance of building an exemplary public service reflective of the citizens it serves, where diverse abilities, backgrounds, cultures, identities, languages and perspectives drives a high standard of service and innovation. The Manitoba government supports equitable employment practices and promotes representation of designated groups (women, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities, visible minorities).

Employment Equity is a factor in selection for this competition. Consideration will be given to Indigenous people, visible minorities and persons with disabilities.

Employment and Income Assistance (EIA) is a program of last resort that provides financial and other assistance to eligible Manitobans who have no other way to support themselves or their families.  The program works with persons living with disabilities to meet their specialized needs and ensure inclusion in the community while also partnering with employable participants and their families to encourage access and participation in the workforce.

The Disability Income Support Program (DISP) is a new income support program for people with severe and prolonged disabilities, separate from EIA.

This competition is being used to fill supervisory positions in both branches (Employment, Income and Health Supports and Regional Social Services).  An eligibility list may be created to fill similar regular and/or term positions in Winnipeg and will remain in effect for 12 months.
