Eastern Ottawa Community Family Health Team
Since 2007, the Eastern Ottawa Community Family Health Team has been filling an important gap by providing primary health care services to the population of East Ottawa.
While being accessible to all residents living in East Ottawa, the mandate of the Family Health Team is to provide a continuum of services and care adapted to the numerous and pressing needs of the francophone population first and foremost.
Priority is given to more vulnerable francophone families and individuals who do not have access to a family physican and therefore cannot access basic health care.
Ottawa Inuit Children's Centre
The Ottawa Inuit Children's Centre (OICC) serves Inuit children and youth from birth to 13 years of age and their families in the southern urban setting of the City of Ottawa. In partnership with parents and the community, the OICC fosters strong Inuit children, youth and families by providing a learning environment that will enhance children's overall wellbeing, adaptability and strength in a proud Inuit cultural environment.
