To join the program, you must send the Request for Assessment form to the designated institution for your region, along with all the documents specified within it. If you have additional questions about the program, you can ask your designated institution.
To find out the designated institution for your region and how to contact it, see the table below:
Institut de réadaptation en déficience physique de Québec
Institut de réadaptation Gingras-Lindsay-de-Montréal
After receiving your application, the institution will contact you. A qualified resource person will proceed with the overall assessment of your needs, your eligibility for the program and your dog’s eligibility. The final decision on your eligibility will be sent to you by mail.
- If you are entitled to reimbursement, it will be retroactive, so you will be reimbursed from the date of your application to the program. This date is the date on which the designated institution for your region received all your documents.
- If you are not entitled to reimbursement, you may be reassessed after correcting the problems raised in your first assessment or if your health status changes.
You can submit another request to the program to be reassessed once every two years for the same dog.
