Funding in your community is determined through your Contribution Agreement (CA), which is allocated to your community every fiscal year, and through discretionary funds.
HCoM only makes decisions relating to discretionary funding, meaning that HCoM does not make decisions that communities already have in their agreements. Discretionary funds are funds that are coming from a specific pot of funds, but there are not yet plans on how to allocate it.
Funding formulas through Health Co-Management are currently under review, as per the direction given at the February 2018 Assembly of Treaty Chiefs meeting. Because each Treaty area has its own unique needs and priorities, the funding formula needs to be reviewed to ensure that it is equitable and fair for all First Nations in Alberta.
