Do you need help navigating the health care system?

OHC Volunteers are happy to be of help! You do not need a doctor`s appointment to come to OHC and get assistance navigating the health care system. There is a computer available to the general pubic at the OHC Info Desk—enter from the parking lot through the main doors on your left. We have created a special website called OHC for Health   https://ohcforhealth.com/ which provides links to all the services available locally and provincially under the categories LIVE for health, PLAY for health, WORK for health and LEARN for health. Drop by and let OHC volunteers help you find the information you are looking for ….and if you would like to volunteer, drop in to see Lorraine on the second floor, or call 902-275-3847
