This series consists of federal-provincial cost sharing agreement histories for services provided by the provincial Ministry of Health, Ministry of the Attorney-General and Ministry of Human Resources. Agreements were between the federal government and the relevant ministry from 1976-1985.
The records document the development and operation of a variety of health and social services, including the Canada Assistance Plan (CAP), Vocational Rehabilitation of Disabled Persons (VRDP) program, and the Young Offenders Act (YOA) agreements. These programs provided social and medical supports, including mental health services and drug and alcohol treatment programs.
Records include meeting agenda, minutes, audit reports, correspondence, paylists, policies, procedures, draft agreements, legislation, treasury board submissions, cabinet submissions, financial records, and subject files relating to direct services funded agencies. The subject files in boxes 9 and 10 are arranged by the name of the agency or group that provided the funded services, then by year. Subject files are organized with separate sub-folders for related records of approval, working papers, backups, and claims and “form M”.
These records were transferred under one time schedule number 870458.
