A Port in the Storm’s Legacy – Ensuring patients continue being supported


A Port in the Storm’s mission was to ease the financial burdens of people from rural and Northern areas who had to stay in Winnipeg to receive medical treatment. We offered them and their families a supportive environment during a stressful time away from home.

After A Port in the Storm wound down as a registered charity, the remaining assets were transferred to three other charities that are committed to perpetuating A Port in the Storm’s mission.

Thank you to these Winnipeg charities for ensuring patients staying in Winnipeg will continue being supported:
