What is a Carrefour santé?
The role of the Réseau du mieux-être francophone du Nord de l’Ontario (Réseau) is to ensure that Francophones in Northern Ontario have access to a set of quality French health programs and services that meet their needs.
To enable Francophones in Northern Ontario to take charge of their health, the Réseau developed the approach of the Carrefour santé . The Carrefours santé (Health Hubs) consist of a group of people in a community who come together to identify the needs of their community and find solutions.
There are currently 17 Carrefours santé in the Northeast and the Northwest. It is also important to note that some communities have chosen to use existing tables or groups as a means of engaging with Francophones.
