Health-related transport & accommodation

The Out-of-Region Services Branch is responsible for the Nunavik NIHB Regional Health Transportation Policy.

  • The main objective of this policy is to enable Nunavik health and social services institutions to provide transportation and accommodation for eligible NIHB clients requiring health services outside their community of residence.
  • Also included is the determination of the right to an escort, as well as compensation for patients choosing not to use transit or Ullivik services.
  • The provisions of the policy apply to beneficiaries under the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement (1975) whose place of residence is Nunavik.
