Who Can Use EFAP


Although we primarily provide service to Vancouver Coastal Health and Providence Health Care, we also provide service to a few other healthcare groups, including the Resident Doctors of BC, the Dr. Peter Centre, St. Michael's Centre, Pender Harbour Health Centre, and others. To find out if your organization is serviced by our program, or for more information about eligibility, please contact the EFAP.

EFAP is typically offered to all eligible employees and family members* of the health authorities and organizations we serve. Eligible employees include full-time, part-time, casual*, and inactive employees on record, as well as those employees on LTD. Terminated employees are covered up to 3 months after their last day of employment. Salaried, contracted and sessional physicians working out of a facility that receives service from the EFAP are also eligible.

Eligible family members typically include the partners and dependent children of eligible employees.
