EDMONTON, AB – Indigenous groups and organizations can now apply for grants under a new provincial program.

Funding is available through the $154 million Continuing Care Capital Program. It offers one-time capital grants to support the construction, upgrading and renovation of continuing care spaces.

The province commented that “by advancing continuing care capacity, either on or off-reserves and Metis settlements, Alberta’s government will provide better access to health services for Indigenous people.”

Minister of Health Tyler Shandro stated that, “Indigenous people in our province need access to local care equipped with culturally relevant services. That’s why I’m so pleased we’re moving forward with the launch of the Continuing Care Capital Program.”
