Discuss.gif Tom, you mention Shared Health in here yet the title says St Boniface; is this shared health wide or specific to each hospital? Some of it seems to be Service Canada, so same for everyone. Would it make more sense to have a "Critical Illness Leave" page that lists and links org specific? Who would know most about this? Tom response-there are nuances between St. B. and Shared Health. The other hospitals seem to follow Shared Health, however I haven't looked at Concordia yet.
