Today, we take time to pause and reflect for the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation. We mourn the innocent victims of Canadian residential schools, as well as acknowledge the lasting impact of these atrocities on Indigenous families, descendants, and communities. We acknowledge that our hospital is built on the traditional territory of Fort William First Nation, signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850. We also recognize the contributions made to our community by the Métis people.
To our Indigenous clients, partners, and community members - we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you, today and every day.

We are not currently accepting new clients. Due to recent shortages of prescription foods, we are also unable to sell food to non-clients at this time.
