Clinic launched ‘where care matters more than a (health) card’


Nicholas Keung Immigration reporter for the Toronto Star, published an article on June 11, 2015 on a new health clinic, made possible by volunteers and donors, will care for some of Toronto’s most vulnerable residents — the uninsured and undocumented. There will all be a grand opening of the Canadian Centre for Refugee and Immigrant Health Care on Sheppard Ave. E., in Scarborough, with an open house that runs through June 13-14. The former Volunteer Health Clinic for the Uninsured has finally found a permanent home in the 107-year-old manse of Knox Presbyterian Church Agincourt. The new 2,800-square-foot facility will house a medical clinic, a dental clinic, pediatric services, midwifery and diagnostic imaging programs, chiropractic and massage services, and a foot care clinic all under one roof. It will be run by medical professionals volunteering their time and will serve some of the most vulnerable residents — the undocumented and uninsured.
