COVID-19 – Provincial Recruitment and Redeployment Team
There is a need for increased health workforce capacity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Provincial Recruitment and Redeployment team (PRRT) has been established under the Shared Health/Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living COVID-19 Provincial Incident Command to:
• Create a consolidated view of our provincial health care workforce to centrally manage and expedite high priority COVID-19 resource requests;
• Participate in COVID-19 planning to anticipate and align staffing resource needs with the COVID-19 bed map strategy and priorities;
• Coordinate and expedite the redeployment, scheduling and compensation of staff within and across all regions and SDOs throughout the province;
• Facilitate the expedited hiring of a central pool of casual staff in priority categories (e.g. former/retired nurses) that may be assigned to any site in Manitoba facing a COVID-19 crisis.

In order to optimize resources for the COVID-19 response, the input and support of the Service Delivery Organizations will be essential to ensure the PRRT meets ongoing needs throughout the pandemic. SDOs and provincial organizations are required to provide the necessary information for the PRRT to develop a consolidated view of Manitoba’s provincial health workforce and identify staff that could be redeployed to support urgent COVID-19 resource needs.
