iPhones to Help Indigenous Patients Stay Connected

Updated: Nov 5

Helping Enhance Virtual Connections within Indigenous Communities during the

COVID-19 Pandemic


With the assistance of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) is seeking ways to help provide support in keeping Indigenous communities virtually connected. Staying connected in the quarantine may be challenging for some families who may not have access to a computer or communication device. Updated information and resources are critical for the health and safety of everyone during this time.


If you or someone you know is facing any barriers accessing a device to stay connected and need one, please complete the application form below. The devices will be provided as a one-time gift to help assist in keeping communities virtually connected.


Please note: A limited number of iPads and iPhones are available. Devices will be distributed on a first-come basis.


These devices are not to be considered as the property of CCMB as they are gifts. Therefore, CCMB is not responsible for any device gifted to you from CCMB.


CCMB will not repair or assist with repair, will not replace or be responsible for anything related to the device once it has been gifted to you.


These devices have the manufacturer’s warranty (1 year) from when they were purchased (June 2020).


The recipient of the device can purchase extended coverage (AppleCare) from Apple directly.


Cell plans, data plans, Wi-Fi, and repairs/maintenance expenses will be the responsibility of the individual/owner of the device.
