On December 15, 1998, Federal/Provincial/Territorial Health Ministers announced a financial assistance package for HIV/AIDS secondarily infected individuals who are first order relatives (spouse/partner or a child) of Extraordinary Assistance Plan (EAP) recipients.

This assistance package, funded by the federal, provincial and territorial governments, consists of one lump sum payment of $240,000 tax-free.

You may be eligible to apply for this assistance if you are:

  • a first order relative (spouse, partner or child) of a federal Extraordinary Assistance Plan (EAP) recipient;
  • HIV positive resulting from the relationship with the primary EAP recipient, and not from other risk factors; and
  • you are a resident of Canada and were a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant at the time you were diagnosed HIV positive.

The estates of deceased persons who would have met the above criteria are also eligible to apply.

As of September 24, 2003 Crawford Adjusters Canada Inc. is administering the HIV secondary program. Crawford Adjusters Canada Inc. is now ready to continue with the evaluation of all pending applications as well as accepting new applications.
