Who We Are
At Victoria Hospital Foundation, the health of our community is at the heart of what we do. For over 45 years, we have been making a significant impact on the health and well-being of our community.
The Victoria Hospital Foundation was formed in 1971 when Victoria Hospital moved from its downtown location to South Winnipeg. In 1991, it transformed from a modest research and development program into a vibrant non-profit organization.
We have recently broadened our mission to advance healthcare at Victoria Hospital and in our community to help us achieve our vision of healthier futures for the people in our community. Healthier lifestyles can prevent chronic disease, reduce the progression of an existing condition and ultimately allow ourselves and our loved ones to enjoy a better quality of life.
We are dedicated to working with people like you to identify, support and fund the innovations that improve the health of our patients, our neighbours and our friends.
Together, we can ensure we have the advanced healthcare that our loved ones need, right here in our community, today and in the future.
Victoria Hospital Foundation operates within the Winnipeg Health Region, which provides services to all nations on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Ininiwak, Anishininewak, Dakota-Oyate, Dene, Inuit, and the national homeland of the Red River Métis. Treaties were created with the First Nations and include past, present, and future inhabitants, so we are all treaty people. Winnipeg Health Region serves those on Treaty 1 and Treaty 5 lands. We acknowledge the five Dakota communities in Manitoba that are not signatories to any treaties with Canada. We acknowledge that Winnipeg takes its drinking water from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation. We acknowledge that the acts of colonization which are part of our history have caused deep, lasting harm, which continues today. We commit ourselves, in a good way, to learning about truth and reconciliation, promote healing, and creating a better future for all.
