Research We Do

The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy carries out research on the health and well-being of Manitobans.

Our researchers carry out research using the Repository under contract to the Manitoba Government through Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living and the Healthy Child Committee of Cabinet to provide analyses to support policy development or service planning. These studies usually take 2-3 years to complete and we publish 4-5 Deliverables (reports) annually. For more information on MCHP Deliverables, please see our Publications and Presentations web page. 

Centre researchers collaborate on large projects using the Repository. Current projects include:

Centre researchers also run their own individual research programs using the Repository. This includes University of Manitoba Faculty researchers and external researchers from across Canada and internationally.

How to Work With Us

If you wish to use the Manitoba Population Research Data Repository, we encourage you to explore what data we have and discuss your project idea with Charles Burchill, Associate Director, Data Access and Use.

At this time, MCHP is offering financial support to researchers wishing to use the Repository through the MCHP Rady Faculty Research Support Fund.

MCHP researchers and students have published more than 900 journal articles, reports and abstracts from research carried out using the Repository. We have produced over 125 Deliverables for a variety of Manitoba government departments.
