What is CSIL?
Choice in Supports for Independent Living (CSIL) is an alternative way for people with disabilities in BC to receive home support services. The goal of CSIL is to provide more choice and flexibility to people with disabilities who have high intensity care needs. CSIL employers receive funds to purchase their own home support services; they are responsible for recruiting, hiring, training, scheduling and supervising their own home support workers. Under CSIL the person with the disability assumes the role of employer with all of the rights and responsibilities that involves.
To be eligible for CSIL, you must first be eligible for provincial home support services.
A health authority case manager will meet with you to discuss your care needs, and your eligibility for HCC services and CSIL.
