About Us

What is a Community Health Centre?

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.
