EICP Initiative Commitments

The following commitments will guide the activities of the Enhancing Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Primary Health Care (EICP) Initiative.


The EIPC Steering Committee and project team will work to ensure balance and breadth of perspective at all EIPC-hosted events, consultations or roundtables.


All Steering Committee members have a shared interest in advancing interdisciplinary collaboration in primary health care in Canada. The Steering Committee has the latitude it requires to undertake any research or work it considers necessary, and to determine the nature and scope of its recommendations.


The EICP Steering Committee and project team will operate in an open and transparent manner and will post on the EICP web site: formal submissions it receives; any research, focus groups, surveys or public opinion research it commissions or undertakes; interim reports or recommendations it makes to the initiative authority; and, its final report.


Every reasonable effort will be made to raise awareness of the EIPC Initiative among interested primary health care stakeholders and to enable them to share their views and perspectives with the project team. The project team will use multiple communications channels to share information about the Initiative and will solicit third-party input and advice.


The EICP Steering Committee and project team will respond to all reasonable information requests or queries in a timely, responsible and complete fashion, with due regard to the privacy rights of individuals.  The EICP Steering Committee will review, on its merits, any proposal or recommendation it receives to enhance interdisciplinary collaboration in primary health care in Canada.


The EICP Steering Committee’s recommendations and conclusions will be based on a thorough and objective assessment of the best available evidence.


The EICP project team will undertake its research, engagement and deliberative processes in a responsible, comprehensive and timely fashion that ensures breadth of perspective and respect for the professional judgement and capacities of providers, patients, regulators and governments.


The EICP Steering Committee will adjust its processes, activities and general timeframes to take account of the evolving public and policy environment, and to accommodate the broadest possible participation by interested stakeholders in its activities and deliberations.

The Primary Health Care Transition Fund

Funding for this announcement originates from the $800 million Primary Health Care Transition Fund (PHCTF) which was established in September 2000 by the Government of Canada to support the efforts of provinces and territories, and other stakeholders, to develop and implement transitional primary health care reform initiatives, as part of the overall renewal of Canada's health care system.
