Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund

Hospitals are responsible for ensuring that their facilities are in a good state-of-repair by managing their capital assets, and planning renewal activities.

On a priority basis, the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF) provides funds to supplement a hospital's existing capital renewal program, and help address renewal needs (e.g., roofing systems, boilers, windows).

Under this program, hospitals may receive a grant for eligible projects, regardless of their own ability to raise a local share of the project costs. There is no cost-sharing requirement, and 100% of the grant may be used on a single project.

Hospitals may select projects based on their own priorities, subject to the program eligibility criteria (outlined in the guidelines, below).
