The Rideau Veterans Home Transfer Agreement is an agreement dated 25 March 1992 between the Minister of Veterans Affairs Canada, the Minister of Health Ontario and the Perley Hospital.
The agreement is a capital contribution arrangement between the three parties for the costs of construction of the current Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre. The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre is a 450-bed facility which was constructed to replace the 150 beds at the Rideau Veterans’ Hospital, the 50 Veterans’ beds at the National Defence Medical Centre, 200 beds at the Perley Hospital, and 50 Veterans’ beds from the Institute of Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario.
The agreement covers many subjects but with the passage of time many of its provisions have been overtaken by events. However, it is a significant agreement that is still binding on Perley Rideau and to which reference must continually be made. The agreement is available on the Perley Rideau website under Board Governance/Board Research Tools.
