As newcomers to Canada, it’s important we as a country provide you with the best health care we can. But to get it, we need to help you make your way through our health-care system. This section of the Global Health website is to help all newcomers understand how and where to get the medical help they need. 

The information found in the Newcomers portion of this site consists primarily of a compiled guide provided courtesy of Kingston Community Health Centres, Immigrant Services Kingston and Area, and student occupational therapists from Queen’s University (Mohamed Al-Haj and Michelle Bickell).
