During your first appointment, you will have a chance to talk about your worries, concerns and ask questions. We want you to take part in your appointments and get the most out of a visit with your health care team. The brochure below Your Guide to CancerCare Manitoba also provides you with basic information to help prepare you for your first appointment.
Every attempt is made to mail the brochure to new patients before their first visit. If you didn’t receive a copy, please pick one up at any time at the CCMB Patient and Family Resource Centre (room 1016 - 675 McDermot Ave), the St. Boniface Site (O Block - 409 Taché Ave) or any of our Community Cancer Program sites.
Below you can also view My Cancer Notebook and First Nations Patient Guide.

This guide provides information about cancer, introduces patients to their health care team, and helps patients get ready for their first appointment at CancerCare Manitoba. This guide also lists different services for First Nations patients, including getting connected with Non-Insured Health Benefits and Health Canada to help with treatment and travel.
These diagrams help show what a cancer journey may look like for a patient. The lung, breast, and colon pathways also provide timeline information about when patients might expect to move to the next step along their journey. All pathways have contact information for different programs and services at CancerCare Manitoba.
The general pathway is also available in the following languages: Ininimowin (Swampy Cree), Anishnaabemowin (Ojibwe), Anishininemowein (Ojibwe-Cree), Dakota, Dene, Michif Cree, Michif French and Inuktitut. Click here.
