The Unified Referral Intake System (URIS) is a program developed to support children who have designated health care needs when attending a school, licensed child care centre or other community program (e.g. respite).

Through URIS, a registered nurse will work with you, your child, physician, school and/or child care centre to develop individual health care and emergency health care plans as well as to train and monitor staff that care for your child while they attend school and/or child care centre. Care plans are reviewed annually to ensure they are up to date.

To apply, contact your school, child care centre or community program.
