CHCA has been retained as a primary contractor in Ontario, and as back-up stream in Manitoba and Alberta, to provide nursing services and care primarily in remote, isolated, and semi-isolated communities. The contracts have an initial term of 4 years, for an initial estimated value of $23.4M and includes 4 1-year extension options, that if exercised, could increase the total value of the contracts over the full 8-year period. The contracts were awarded on November 3 and are to transition in early 2024.

CHCA is a provider of specialized nursing services that focuses on the recruitment, training, and placement of Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners for expanded roles and essential services to Indigenous communities across Canada’s north. CHCA is based in Cambridge, Ontario, and was founded in 2001 in response to severe staffing shortages in Canada’s northern regions.
