Community Health Centres are non-profit community-governed organizations that provide primary health care, health promotion and community development services, using multi-disciplinary teams of health providers.
North Lambton Community Health Centre, as one of a network of CHCs and Aboriginal Health Access Centres (AHACs) across the province, is committed to a new Community Health Centre and Aboriginal Health Access Centre Model of Health and Well Being.
CHCs and AHACs offer a range of comprehensive primary health care and health promotion programs in diverse communities across Ontario. Services are structured and designed to eliminate system-wide barriers to accessing health care and harmful forms of social exclusion that may lead to an increased burden or risk of ill health. Although each CHC and AHAC across the province is different, because they respond to the specific needs of the communities they serve, each follows the same model to promote health and wellbeing.

Our multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, social workers and dietitians provide assessment, diagnosis and treatment and referral to other health care professionals when required. Our primary health care team also advises our clients on how to improve and maintain their health as part of holistic primary care.
Working with our communities, we provide primary health care, health promotion and community development, with a focus on people who face challenges to accessing care.
Healthy People, Strong Communities
Our priority populations include seniors, Indigenous peoples, farming families, low income individuals/families, youth at risk, people living with moderate mental illness, and families with young children.
We provide some primary health care services for people who are not a registered client as our capacity permits. This includes those whose physicians have made arrangements for us to see their patients for a defined period of time. Tourists are encouraged to seek medical care from a local Emergency Department or Walk In Clinic.
