Bursary Assistance Program

Pine River has always been committed to ensuring that every young person in need can access the full range of care they need at Pine River, regardless of their family’s financial situation. Since opening in 2006, no youth or family has ever been denied access to a MOH funded treatment bed, or to full program participation because they couldn’t afford supplemental program fees, aftercare fees, or other fees. Bursaries from Pine River for families in need help ensure that any youth can access Pine River’s life-saving care, regardless of their family’s financial situation.
