For general health information, including a “find a doctor” search tool with a list of doctors accepting new patients, and a database with information on prescription and over-the-counter drugs, go to www.HealthyOntario.com

For other health-related needs, we have compiled a map of support services that include the following

  • Low-cost dental care
  • Community Health Centres, including Street Health sites: Nurses at Street Health clinics assess health complaints and make referrals to doctors, dentists and social services.  If needed, nurses can provide some over-the-counter medications, as well as supplies such as socks, vitamins, hygiene products, and clothes. They will accompany clients to the hospital or to appointments when necessary.  A nurse practitioner attends the Tuesday and Thursday clinics and can write prescriptions for various medications, including antibiotics.
  • Drugs, Alcohol and Detox (Withdrawal Management): Services to address alcohol and drug addiction including withdrawal management, harm reduction and ongoing treatment.
  • Mental Health social recreation/drop-in programs
