Finding a Family Physician
If you currently do not have a Family Physician, you can register with a service provided by the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care called Health Care Connect. This service assists you in finding a family physician in your community.
For further information you may call 1-800-445-1822 or visit Health Care Connect online.
If you have a medical concern after hours or on weekends;
Contact Health Connect Ontario – 811
Health Connect Ontario is a free, confidential telephone service you can call to get health advice or general health information from a Registered Nurse. That means quick, easy access to a qualified health professional, who can assess your symptoms and help you decide your best first step. They can help you decide whether to care for yourself, make an appointment with your Family Physician, contact a community service or go to a hospital emergency room.
A call to Health Connect Ontario does not replace 911 – that is always the first number you should call in emergency situations.
Free Access to a Registered Nurse:
811 (TTY 1-866-797-0007)
24 hours a day, 7 days a week
