Audrey Brings Experience and
Knowledge to the Table

I am a 30-year Southeast Winnipeg resident with extensive public service experience in addition to being an active community volunteer and small business owner. I hold a Master of Business Administration Degree (Dean’s List) and a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Inter-Faculty Option in Aging), a Certificate in Change Management and Certificate in Applied Counselling.

I am the Honourable Minister of Health for the province of Manitoba and MLA for Southdale. Prior to my time as an MLA and Minister for Health, I worked for the Manitoba Government and Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.

 

During my 25 years of employment with the Manitoba Government, I worked within several government departments including the positions of Special Assistant to the Minister of Health, Assistant to the Deputy Minister of Labour and Immigration, and Director of the Multiculturalism Secretariat among others.

 

During my time working with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, I helped lead and implement initiatives in areas of home care, child health, IT solutions, kidney health, and long-term care.

Chat with Audrey

Hearing from community members is incredibly important to my work. I want to know what matters to you and how I can help. Helping people and being there for the community is one of the reasons I enjoy volunteering my time and the main reason I became your MLA. I always look forward to hearing from you. Visit with me during my coffee events or my sofa conversations, or please feel free to reach out directly.

A Supporter of Strong Communities

From coaching mini soccer to serving on several health and long-term care organization boards, I aim to continue to have an impact on my community through volunteering.​ Current passions include frequently organizing food drives to ensure our local food banks stay stocked and participating in community clean ups. I also feel strongly about supporting our local small businesses and entrepreneurs through their stores and local markets. In that past I volunteered with Siloam Mission and the Arthur Mauro Centre for Peace and Justice.

As a small business owner and mother of two sons, I know the value of community services and support.​ I co-own a transportation company with my husband of 37 years. I also utilized many community recreation programs when raising my two sons (now adults) as they grew up in south Winnipeg. With first-hand experience, I understand and respect the moms and dads that dedicate their time to ensure their children are able to participate in extracurricular activities in their communities.
