Capitale-Nationale Refugee Health Clinic

The Capitale-Nationale Refugee Health Clinic provides refugees with access to healthcare and services. Here refugees can experience a sense of belonging within the health system and start strong in their new surroundings. 

In accordance with MSSS (Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux) guidelines, the Refugee Health Clinic was created to provide health services adapted to this particularly vulnerable clientele.


The following services are available by appointment only:

  • Physical health assessment
  • Psychosocial wellness assessment
  • One-time treatments
  • Network referrals as needed:  Procedure for access to a family doctor, vaccination, psychosocial services, medical specialists, etc.


All new or settled refugees in the Capitale-Nationale region. 

How to access services

The Refugee Health Clinic operates mainly on the basis of referrals from Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion.

  • Each year, Canada lives out its humanitarian traditions and grants protection to some 24,000 refugees.
