Holiday Season Resources 

The winter season brings with it an increased demand for health services in tandem with holiday closures between Christmas and New Year’s. Knowing where to go for health care is key for many individuals and families this time of year.

Eriestclairhealthline.ca is a free, comprehensive on-line resource featuring up-to-date information on services available for non-emergency medical needs in our communities across Chatham-Kent, Sarnia/Lambton, and Windsor/Essex. 

 

Health Service Providers

As part of the Erie St. Clair LHIN surge planning, we are working to ensure that all LHIN-funded health service providers have access to the Emergency Management Communication Tool (EMCT).

If a LHIN, public health unit, paramedic service or hospital does not currently have a representative who can access EMCT (or you are not sure), please contact EMCT Support at EMCT@LHINs.on.ca or by calling 1-844-668-3628. The number of available licenses will be limited to ensure these organizations can register.

For more information, please visit the Ontario EMCT website at:
