To be eligible for Community Health Services professional care, you must:

  • Be a Canadian citizen or have permanent resident status (landed immigrant or approved Minister’s permit) or have been issued a temporary residence permit;
  • Require care at home; and
  • Meet the functional criteria for the service.

To be eligible for subsidized services within Community Health Services, you must:

  • Be a Canadian citizen or have permanent resident status (landed immigrant or approved Minister's permit)
  • Be 19 years of age or older; and
  • Be a resident of BC for at least 3 months

These eligibility requirements are set by the BC Ministry of Health Services.

If you are eligible for Community Health Services, we work with you to determine which specific services you are eligible for using standard assessments and criteria.  We use the same system with every client to help make sure you receive services fairly.

If you are not eligible for our services, we will give you information about other services in your community that may be able to meet your needs.
