Health and Wellbeing Service Feasibility Report and Alternative Approval Process
In 2022, Urban Matters completed a feasibility study on establishing a health and well-being service on Gabriola Island. This study compared similar services and held stakeholder meetings with organizations that coordinate health and well-being-related services. The study results are summarized in the report: Feasibility Report: Community Health and Wellbeing Service – Gabriola Island.
The report recommends starting with Part-time Administration and Coordination services, as a pilot intending to grow the service over time towards Full-time Administration. By starting with Part-time Administration and Coordination, the community will be able to measure the impact of the service over time and expand to Full-time Administration if desired. Starting with Part-time Administration and Coordination also carries the lowest risk for the contracted service organization and the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN). Further details about this study and recommendations can be found in the Staff Report and the Feasibility Report: Community Health and Wellbeing Service – Gabriola Island.
Information sessions about the Feasibility Report were held from September 16 - 25, 2023. Pending approval by the RDN Board, an Alternative Approval Process (AAP) will be held in early 2024. This webpage will be updated following a staff report that is going to the RDN Board in October.
