Assisted Living Program




Assisted Living Program provides funds to identified service providers to help provide non-medical, social support services to people living on-reserve with chronic illness or disability.

Eligible Applicants

First Nations, provinces and Yukon receive funding on an annual basis as part of agreements negotiated between the federal, provincial and Yukon governments.

First Nations, provinces and Yukon then provide assisted living services to eligible recipients. Individuals who believe they may be eligible to receive these services should contact their band’s assisted living coordinator or their band manager to arrange an assessment by a health care provider.

Who can receive assisted living services?

  • Any individual residing on-reserve, or ordinarily resident on-reserve, who has been formally assessed by a health care provider (in the provinces or Yukon) as requiring social support services.
  • Individuals must not have the means to obtain such services themselves, or access to other sources of support from the federal, provincial or Yukon governments.
  • Residents of the Northwest Territories or Nunavut are covered by their territorial government program.

Eligible Expenses

This program provides funding for non-medical, social support services to seniors, adults with chronic illness, and children and adults with disabilities (mental and physical) on reserve to help them maintain their independence.

There are three major components:

  • in-home care
  • adult foster care
  • institutional care (for those needing personal non-medical 24-hour care)
