Service Description

Registered First Nations individuals living on-reserve in Nova Scotia have access to home-based health care and residential care through provincially and federally funded programs.

Eligibility for provincial continuing care services varies, depends on whether a person lives on-reserve and whether they are a Registered Status individual under the federal Indian Act and therefore have access to similar federally funded services.

Eligibility

Eligibility is assessed by a care coordinator

Non-Status individuals living off-reserve can access all provincial continuing care services. Status individuals living off-reserve can access many continuing care services, but there are some exceptions.

Non-Status individuals living on-reserve can access provincial continuing care services through the Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA). While some Bands in Nova Scotia do provide these individuals with access to home and community care services through the local health centre, others do not.

Status individuals living on-reserve can access provincial continuing care services that are not provided by the First Nation and Inuit Home and Community Care Program or the Assisted Living Program through Indigenous Services Canada. The availability of non-essential services varies by Band.
