Living in Winnipeg:
Winnipeg is booming with arts & cultural activity – world-class theatre, dance, live music, nightlife, and more. Our clinics are located in North Kildonan, a calm neighbourhood with tree-lined streets and many charming homes. Housing and the cost of living is remarkably affordable compared to other major Canadian cities.
What our physiotherapists say about Winnipeg:
- “I love that Winnipeg feels like a big village but it has all the services and amenities of a big city. I also love the amount of parks and green space our city has to offer, and how close we are to nature.” – Julia McDaniels, BMR-PT
- “I love the people and the sunshine! Since I’m originally from B.C., and I lived in Vancouver for years, I can confidently say I’ll take sunshine and snow over constant grey skies any day.” – Peter Sidhu, MPT.
- “The summers are amazing – it gets really hot and there are so many lakes and beaches nearby. Like, white sand beaches and crystal clear water, I’m not kidding. Winnipeg is so underrated – when I came here last summer I was blown away by the quality of theatre, dance and live music.” – Andrea Grant, MScPT
- “I love how multicultural Winnipeg is, and I appreciate this most when trying out different restaurants throughout the city. Also, the Winnipeg Jets!” – Ryan Pang, MPT
- "I love Winnipeg culture – there are so many amazing restaurants, events and beautiful areas to explore. I love the outdoors – the parks, both winter and summer trails and the surrounding lakes." - Maddy Lengyel, MPT
