General

The CHRC is made up of 13 centres, set up to provide various Community-based services with special emphasis on assisting the most vulnerable and at risk in the society. The Coalition is made up of 6 Community Health Centres, 6 Community Resource Centres, and a Community Service Centre. These Centres are located in neighbourhoods throughout Ottawa, from the inner city out to the suburbs and beyond to rural areas.

All of the 13 Centres provide ‘one-stop’ access to social and community services, health promotion and community development programs. The community health centres also offer primary health care, chronic disease management, nutrition and other related health care programs. Some community resource centres are linked with health care providers such as a family health team and diabetes community education program.

Centres recognize the importance of responding to the diversity of needs and interests within local communities and pay particular attention to those members of the community who are most vulnerable and at risk. Some programs and services are also open to the general public. To find out more contact your local CHRC. Please click here to find a CHRC.
