Manitoba Public Insurance re-opening Winnipeg’s Main Street Service Centre

Manitoba Public Insurance is re-opening its Winnipeg Main Street Service Centre, effective March 10, 2022. While this location will remain a COVID-19 mobile, drive-thru testing centre operated by Shared Health, it will also offer MPI front counter services and driver testing appointments to customers.

MPI recently announced the suspension of its Third Party Pandemic policy, effective March 1. As a result, individuals who are not fully vaccinated or prefer not to share will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result for services/appointments where physical distancing or barriers are not possible, which previously included road tests and driver assessments.

The policy previously applied to all third-party individuals, including consultants, volunteers, board members and contractors, including students and instructors in the Driver Z program.

Customers attending any MPI location must continue to adhere to the following requirements, until further notice:

  • Wear a mask at all times, preferably a medical grade mask.
  • While customers will again be permitted to wait for their service/appointment in our Service Centre waiting rooms, they will need to maintain social/physical distancing requirements of 6 feet from staff and other customers.
  • Answer pre-screening questions when receiving services or attending appointments. We also encourage customers to continue to also self-screen prior to attending our locations and if they have COVID-19 symptoms, please do not visit until they have subsided.

MPI’s plexi-glass barriers will remain in place to provide protection for employees and customers. MPI has also resumed booking oral knowledge test appointments.

“MPI is slowly returning to regular business operations,” MPI’s President and CEO Eric Herbelin said today. “We thank our customers for their understanding during the closure of the Main Street Service Centre and look forward to welcoming them back to this location.”
