Tools and Forms

Please ensure that your signing dates are dated after the “Applicable Period” dates.

The Board must make this assessment AFTER the time period has expired, otherwise, they cannot assure compliance for the entire period.

Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund (CIRF)

Community Health Service Providers (HSPs) are responsible for planning infrastructure renewal activities to ensure that their facilities are in a good state of repair. Recognizing the need for the renewal of community health care infrastructure, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (Ministry) created the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund (CIRF) program. This program is intended to assist eligible HSPs in addressing renewal needs on a priority basis.
