Doctors in Beauval will have to continue running their health clinic out of rented quarters for at least another year.


The provincial budget doesn’t contain any money for a new health clinic there.


Keewatin Yatthe Regional Health Authority CEO Richard Petit says the health region has been pushing for a new clinic in Beauval for years.


Staff are currently working out of rented facilities.


Although there is no money for a new clinic, the province has helped the region cope by providing money to rent space.


Petit says he is grateful for that, but a new facility is still a high priority.
