Support for Families


The St.Amant Family Association has an effective working group with which we support and strengthen the decision making process within St.Amant and meet on a regular basis in order to maintain a high quality of standard for the health and well-being of our family members at Health & Transition Services, and in the community homes.

We want to ensure that Manitobans with developmental disabilities, who cannot verbally communicate their needs with others, are heard from when it comes to their emotional, physical, educational, medical and social needs. We offer our resources and insight as to the detailed workings of St.Amant. We have, in the past, spent time clarifying misconceptions and answering questions for families and the community. We have a strong working group, which responds to the issues and needs of all individuals and families who rely on St.Amant. 

Currently, the annual membership dues are $10 per family.


Meetings are held on the second Sunday of the month at 1:00pm from September to June inclusive. The location will be provided to members once confirmed. Should there be any changes to this schedule, you will be notified.
The Family Association frequently has guest presenters from St.Amant staff to communicate and discuss particulars within their responsible areas. We also have presentations provided by government departments and external service providers to review the ever-changing needs of people with developmental disabilities and their rights as individuals.

We encourage you to join us!
