109. The Commission shall enter into a contract with every regional board whereby the regional board undertakes to provide the services required to implement the occupational health programmes in its territory or to provide such services to the institutions or categories of institutions identified in the contract.
However, at the Commission’s request, the Minister of Health and Social Services may in exceptional cases allow a regional board to make a similar undertaking with regard to a territory, other than its own, which is identified in the contract.
The regional board shall designate, in the contract, any person operating a hospital centre or local community service centre that dispenses, among the services referred to in the first paragraph, those which the regional board is unable to provide; that person shall be bound by the contract.
The contract must be consistent with the provisions of the standard contract; it may also set out occupational health priorities applicable to the territory or to the institutions or categories of institutions identified in the contract.
The contract shall be filed by the regional board with the Minister of Health and Social Services.
