The Joysanne Sidimus Fund

​​​​​​​​​The Joysanne Sidimus Fund (JSF) is our financial assistance program which helps cover the costs of fees-for-service at The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre. The fund contributes 75% of the cost of appointments, up to $760, and is available for one year. Applications are assessed based on financial need, medical need and eligibility as a professional artist.

This fund provides short-term support and cannot be relied upon for ongoing treatment.

The fund may be helpful if you are:

  • Covered by Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), with no additional insurance available to you
  • Able to access the Centre regularly for appointments
  • Able to pay 25% of each appointment fee
  • Have a specific medical concern that can be treated within the funding and time limits
  • Meet the eligibility criteria (financial & eligibility as a professional artist)
