Alberta Health is accepting project proposals through the program’s modernization stream to align continuing care spaces with modern standards.

“The modernization grants are an innovative way to bring aging capacity up to modern standards. Modernizing older continuing care homes will ensure area seniors can remain in their local communities close to their loved ones where they will receive high-quality care in an up-to-date residence.”

Jason Copping, Minister of Health

Modernization stream grant funding is available to legal entities such as not-for-profit and for-profit organizations, housing management bodies and municipalities that meet the eligibility criteria.

The application forms, eligibility criteria and related process documents are posted on the Continuing Care Capital Program page on The application deadline is Jan. 6, 2023.

In Budget 2022, the Alberta government provided $204 million in capital funding for various initiatives to increase and enhance continuing care spaces in Alberta. This includes grant funding for the Continuing Care Capital Program.
