Welcome from Executive Director

Thank you for taking the time to visit and experience Centre de santé communautaire CHIGAMIK Community Health Centre, The People’s Place, in this online environment!  We are excited to present this website as a user-friendly resource for everyone in accessing information about local health care services, programs to support individuals and families in achieving healthier lives and other practical information.

CHIGAMIK (CHEE gah mick) is an Ojibwe word, meaning The People’s Place.  Our name reflects our commitment to being an organization and a place where all members of our communities are welcome and where our services reflect the diversity of our broader community.  It is where our clients and community members have access to culturally-relevant, holistic programs and services in a respectful and inclusive place.  Our goal is to equip our communities to achieve optimal health and well-being through awareness, health promotion and illness prevention.  We believe everyone has the right to accessible and equitable health care and are proud to offer our programs and services in both official languages: English and French.

At CSC CHIGAMIK CHC you have found a special place that creates a circle of care around individuals, families and communities.  At the heart of the CHC Model of Care are our clients – and the communities of which they are a part.  We welcome you to join us, and all other CHCs, in advocating that Every One Matters. Every family. Every individual. Every community.

Merci.  Miigwetch.  Thank you.
