Public insurance was introduced after extensive public hearings that found the existing private system to be expensive, inadequate and confusing. The Manitoba Public Insurance Corporation officially opened for business on Nov. 1, 1971.
Throughout its history, Manitoba Public Insurance has undertaken constant and meaningful change to continually improve service and value. As we drive forward into the future, we remain committed to listening and responding to the needs of Manitobans to ensure that Manitoba Public Insurance remains relevant to the citizens of this province.
