Provincial Program Evaluations

Provincial program evaluations provide information for cross-sectoral policy and program decision-making.

Manitoba supports the following provincial program evaluations:

Families First Home Visiting Program
The Families First home visiting program provides services to families who want parenting supports. The aim of this evaluation was to determine if the well-being of at-risk families was improved by participating in Manitoba’s Families First home visiting program.

Healthy Baby
In 2001 the Healthy Baby Program was introduced in Manitoba. The goal of this program was to increase the health of Manitoba's most vulnerable babies with an income supplement and/or community support programs targeted towards low income mothers and families.
