Through this program, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) works with First Nations and Inuit communities to provide funding for infrastructure that supports the delivery of health-related programs and services.
The program supports:
- Facilities operations and maintenance: this includes funding for the ongoing operations and maintenance activities at health facilities, such as rent, utility charges, cleaning and custodial charges, routine maintenance and minor repairs.
- Minor capital projects: minor repairs and renovations to health infrastructure that cannot be addressed through existing operations and maintenance budgets, and do not meet the definition of a major capital project as they are generally considered less complex.
- Major capital projects: more complex capital planning, design, and construction undertakings to build new, expand or otherwise significantly renovate and repair health facilities. Generally, this includes capital projects where the total project costs $1 million or more, funding is required over more than 1 year or the development of architectural design works is anticipated.
First Nations and Inuit communities across Canada and related organizations in health service delivery may be eligible to apply. For more information, contact your First Nations and Inuit health regional office.
