The Modernization Stream grant application has closed. We are reviewing the applications and will notify applicants once the results have been determined.

Overview

It is estimated the number of seniors in Alberta will double, from over half a million today, to over 1.1 million by 2040. The anticipated demand for continuing care services will grow by 62% by the year 2030.

The continuing care capital program was announced in March 2021 to increase the number of continuing care spaces in Alberta. The program is comprised of grant-funding streams to:

  • develop continuing care capacity with Indigenous groups and organizations
  • modernize existing facilities
  • develop new spaces in priority communities
  • develop small home settings

A capital grant process is now available to replace, upgrade, or renovate existing aged facilities in priority communities to align with modern standards.

Capital grant processes focused on generating new continuing care capacity in priority communities and developing small home environments for 14 or fewer people will be introduced in the future.

Funding

The Alberta government has committed up to $204 million in Budget 2022 for the Continuing Care Capital Program. Project proposals received from eligible applicants in all funding streams are assessed on a competitive basis for this one-time grant funding.
