The Sanatorium Board of Manitoba was founded in the early 1900s when a group of citizens organized to establish a tuberculosis sanatorium at Ninette. The Sanatorium Board of Manitoba was officially created by the Government of Manitoba’s Sanatorium Board of Manitoba Act on February 8, 1904. In 1975, the Manitoba Lung Association was founded as a division of the Sanatorium Board of Manitoba and thereafter became the public-facing entity of the San Board.
In July of 2020, the Government of Manitoba granted a certificate of corporate continuance, making The Lung Association, Manitoba Inc. the official corporate name. The Sanatorium Board of Manitoba officially ceased to exist when The Sanitorium Board Act was repealed in June 2022.
The Annual Reports of the Sanatorium Board of Manitoba (San Board) are public documents that summarized information on the administrative branches of each hospital (finances, operations, personnel) and the overall activities of the organization. Although the document was public, it was aimed primarily at the San Board’s Board of Directors and other financial, government, and medical stakeholders.
MITHP is digitizing Annual reports beginning in 1910 through to the 1970s. Digitization continues as we add additional reports to the database. The Manitoba Legislative Library holds an incomplete set of physical copies of the Annual Reports from 1930 to 2003.
