About PMH

Prairie Mountain Health/Santé Prairie Mountain (PMH) was officially formed in June 2012, following the Manitoba government amalgamation of the former regional health authorities of Assiniboine, Brandon and Parkland. It is one of five regional health authorities in the province.

The Region covers a geographically large area, around 67,000 sq. kilometres. It runs east-west from Saskatchewan/Manitoba border communities like Benito, Elkhorn and Russell to Waterhen Lake, Lake Manitoba and Treherne. From north-south, the region runs from the 53rd parallel north of Mafeking and close to Dawson Bay, right down to the United States border near communities like Melita, Deloraine, Boissevain, Killarney and Cartwright.

The land is also defined as the traditional territories of the Cree, Dakota, Ojibway, Oji-Cree and homelands of the Metis. There are 14 First Nation communities in the geographical area of PMH.  The First Nation communities of Ebb and Flow, Keeseekoowenin, O-Chi-Chak-O-Sipi and Skownan are signatory to Treaty#2 that was signed in 1871.  Gambler First Nation, Pine Creek, Rolling River, Sapotaweyak Cree Nation, Tootinaowaziibeeng, Waywayseecappo and Wuskwi Siphik are signatory to Treaty #4 that was signed in 1874.  The Dakota First Nation communities of Birdtail, Sioux Valley and Canupawakpa were not a part of the Numbered Treaties.  However, they are recognized as having occupation of territories within Manitoba and have secured alliances and arrangements with the Crown.
