The NIHB Program has shared their updated kilometric allowance rates as of July 1, 2022.

Allowance rates may be provided by the NIHB Program when a privately owned vehicle is used by an eligible NIHB client to access medically necessary health services.

Prior to July 1, 2022, the NIHB kilometric rates when using a privately owned vehicle to access health services was 21.5 cents per kilometre (from April 1-June 30, 2022). For trips July 1, 2022 and onward, NIHB’s kilometric rates will be 24.5 cents per kilometre.

NIHB’s rates are reviewed alongside the Commuting Assistance Directive Lower Kilometric Rates released by the National Joint Council (NJC), which can be viewed on their website.

Indigenous Services Canada’s First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) and the Assembly of First Nations have undertaken a joint review of the Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) program, including the medical transportation benefit. As part of this process, NIHB Program private vehicle kilometric rates are currently under review and may be revised in future. The rates above are in effect until further notice.
