Coming together to plan the future of Eeyou/Eenou health and social services

The current 2016-2021 Strategic Regional Plan (SRP) is coming to an end and it is time to create a new 2023-2029 SRP.  

What is the SRP?

The SRP describes what we are expected to achieve and the measures we will use to demonstrate if we have succeeded or not. It sets the direction for our organization by providing the strategic orientations and identifying priorities for the next 6 years.   

The SRP will be the basis for negotiation of the next Health Agreement with the Ministry of Health and Social Services of Quebec (MSSS).

Guiding principle for the new SRP

Here at the CBHSSJB, we envision our communities in Eeyou Istchee striving to achieve Miyupimaatisiiun that is reflective of Nishiiyuu.

Miyupimaatisiiun is achieving a balance of all the parts of ourselves:  

  • emotional
  • physical
  • mental
  • spiritual

We envision all community members achieving this balance.

Pathway to the 2023-2029 SRP

To move towards greater Miyupimaatisiiun together, the CBHSSJB needs to create an SRP based on the expectations of Eeyou Eenou for health and well-being. Therefore, the voice of the Eeyou Eenou will lead its creation.  

We want to hear your perspectives, suggestions and priorities to help create the new SRP and to help build the most progressive Eeyou Eenou health and social services.  

Over the next few months, the CBHSSJB will provide opportunities to hear your voice and capture your input:

  1. online survey
  2. discussions with local community members and groups
  3. a regional health assembly


  • Summer-Fall 2022: Online survey and community tour will gather input from community members and partners
  • Winter 2023: SRP to be presented to the Board of Directors for approval
  • Spring-Summer 2023: Regional Health Assembly 
  • Summer 2023: Negotiations begin with the MSSS on a new Health Funding Agreement.

Online Survey

To create Miyupimâtisîun reflective of Nishîyû, the SRP Online Survey was made available from July 14 to December 14, 2022.

This survey provided Community members an opportunity to share their perspectives and suggestions on the future of Health & Wellbeing in Eeyou Istchee.

Over the past few months, our SRP team set up Survey booths in all communities where people could ask questions and fill out the survey on paper. We were able to collect valuable information from community members and would like to thank you for your valuable input as your perspectives will inform the new Strategic Regional Plan.  We would also like to extend our thanks for the support received from the local CMCs, Espresso staff, as well as from the Chiefs/Councils and its staff for supporting the SRP team visits to the communities.

Keep an eye out on this page for more updates and information on the SRP 2023-2029!

Thank you for your collaboration in helping us build the most progressive Eeyou Eenou health and social services.
