Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2007-02-23


In Manitoba, personal care homes can be proprietary (for profit) or non-proprietary. Non-proprietary homes can be secular or ethno-cultural (associated with a particular religious faith or language other than English) as well as either freestanding or juxtaposed with an acute care facility. Federal PCHs are usually not included in this total.
