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.
