Unified Referral & Intake System
URIS supports children with special health needs to safely participate in eligible community programs.
Community programs that are eligible for URIS support include:
- school divisions
- funded independent schools
- licensed child-care facilities
- publicly funded respite service.
URIS provides a standard means of classifying health-care needs based on their complexity and determining the degree of professional qualification required by people who support children with special health-care needs. This classification system was established in 1995 in consultation with the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (CRNM) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba (CPSM), and is regularly monitored.
