Health Services Available in French

Below is a list of Champlain LHIN-funded health service providers (Providers), organized by sub-region, that offer all or some of their health services in French.

Designation Basics

Under the French Language Services Act, Providers can acquire designation, which is official recognition that the organization offers services in French. Designation is a means of meeting French-language service needs of the population through capacity-building, supporting guaranteed and permanent access, and establishing quality standards for French-language health services.

Organizations can go through a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care application process to acquire one of three designation statuses: full, partial, and identified (to seek official designation). Organizations with full designation are ones that offer all of their services in French. Those with a partial designation are ones that offer some of their services in French.
