The Saint Boniface Access Centre is a hub of support for the surrounding Saint Boniface community. Acting as primary consultant, MMP recently completed Winnipeg’s newest health access centre, Access Saint Boniface in the spring of 2016. Located at the corner of Goulet and Kenny, the new centre improves access to bilingual health and community services for all Winnipegers. The Saint Boniface Access Centre builds on the concept of the Bilingual Service Centre; all users will have the option of service in French or English throughout their visit.
The Saint Boniface Access Centre houses Centre de Santé Saint-Boniface, a staple in health services in St. Boniface, alongside several other health and community organizations. Programs and services offered at the centre include primary health, mental health, disAbility, and home care. As different services are housed on different floors, each floor features a distinct accent colour to remind visitors where they are in the space and assist with wayfinding. Careful interior and architectural design features of this new building include convenient access to bus routes, covered parking, ample corridors and signage integrated into the design of the space. Together thesefactorscontribute to a welcoming environment for all.
