Intermediate resource

An intermediate resource (IR) is a type of accommodation that houses children or adults who may have particular needs related to a loss of autonomy, physical or intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder or mental health problems. Its mandate is to provide a temporary or permanent living environment to users entrusted by the CISSS de la Côte-Nord and to provide them with support or assistance services to meet their needs.

You can submit a project to operate an IR when the CISSS de la Côte Nord publishes a public call for tenders on the website of the /typo3conf/l10n/fr/rtehtmlarea/Resources/Private/Language/fr.locallang_accessibilityicons.xlf:external_link_new_window_altTextSystème électronique d’appel d’offres du Gouvernement du Québec (SEAO)

Family-type resource

A family-type resource generally consists of one or two people who house a maximum of nine users (children or adults) entrusted by the CISSS de la Côte-Nord in their main place of residence. It provides an alternative living environment adapted to the users’ condition. It helps them in their daily lives and provides them with support and assistance services.
