Through its new “There’s Room For You” recruitment campaign, the Manitoba Hotel Association hopes to recruit energetic, passionate individuals to work in hotels. There are positions to fit just about any job seeker, including part-time opportunities and long-term professional careers.
“The pandemic had a devastating impact on the hotel industry in Manitoba. We’re seeing strong signs that the industry is recovering, but many of our members still need to fill positions that were lost due to the pandemic,” says Scott Jocelyn, president and CEO of the Manitoba Hotel Association.

Funding for the campaign is provided by the Government of Canada and the Government of Manitoba.
Since 2004, Western Financial Group Insurance Solutions has administered the Hospitality Insurance Program (HIP). HIP is the largest insurer of hotels in Manitoba. Following some challenging years for the program, Western Financial Group is working to transition HIP back to the Protected Self Insurance Program model that has been successful and popular in our industry.
The Manitoba Hotel Association will be working closely with Western Financial Group's team to secure strong coverage for hotels of all sizes.
The MHA is proud to launch “Keep Kids Safe” - our new training program for hotels. The program, developed in partnership with MTEC and the Government of Manitoba, is now live and available for all hotel managers and staff to complete, free of charge.
The objective of Keep Kids Safe is to combat child and youth sexual exploitation. The course will help hotel workers identify the signs and learn how to report it.
There is no limit on the number of employees at a hotel that can take the training for free. It is available either online or in a paper format.
We encourage all hotel staff, in all positions, to complete the training. Please visit www.keepkidssafetraining.com to register your employees and get started.
A big thank you to our partners, MTEC and the Government of Manitoba, for helping to make this important training a reality.
