Who Is IFRC ?

The Individualized Funding Resource Centre (IFRC) Society in a non-profit organization which provides services and supports to people with disabilities throughout British Columbia. Paul Gauthier, Executive Director, is a founder of the Choice in Supports for Independent Living (CSIL) program and created the IFRC to help people to not only access the program but empower them to become successful employers and have the best independent living option in BC possible.

As a CSIL Employer himself, Paul has real insight into the challenges faced by people transitioning to the CSIL Program. He and the IFRC team support, provide solutions and are ready to accompany people on their journey. Paul Gauthier is also an Executive on the Association of CSIL Employers (ACE); a group of CSIL Employers who work collaboratively with the Ministry of Health and the Health Authorities around the CSIL program.

The Process

Applying for CSIL, one of the best options for independent living in bc,  and preparing for a physical assessment, can be a daunting process. IFRC helps clients prepare the application documents and create detailed Supportive Lifestyle Plans; which is an impactful, and meaningful document outlining the individual’s care needs.

Being a CSIL Employer is like running a small business, with financial and staff management obligations which the IFRC can assist with. They also assist in budgeting the funding, planning for success, CSIL education and with managing home support hours. Their experienced guidance will also help you request more hours, or appeal decisions made by the Health Authorities.

Services Offered

The IFRC’s full cycle Payroll service is CSIL specific and ensures that the Health Authorities receive the required monthly financial statements.

IFRC fees are eligible expenses with the CSIL funding and the support with the CSIL Application process is at no charge when committing to future services. They are happy to review this with you in detail.
