The mission of the Gabriola Health Care Foundation (“GHCF”), to paraphrase its Constitution, is to help improve the primary health care services provided to the residents of and the visitors to Gabriola by helping to identify their health care needs, and, to the extent of its ability, to help address those needs by:
1. working alone or in partnership with qualified donees (as defined in the Income Tax Act, Canada) or with any Canadian government body, to help develop and/or deliver health care programs that will help address those needs;
2. provide medical facilities and/or medical equipment to be used for the benefit of residents of and visitors to Gabriola Island; and/or
3. gifting funds to qualified donees that are working to help meet those needs.
As a landlord, GHCF does not play a role in the management of the business activities of any of the tenants of the Community Health Centre. It is responsible, on the other hand, to ensure that the Community Health Centre is managed in a way that facilitates efficient and appropriate use of the facilities by health care professionals to meet the health care needs of the residents of and visitors to Gabriola.
