How do I become a client?

The Guelph Community Health Centre is currently ONLY accepting applications from community members with Interim Federal Health (such as refugees) or other non-insured residents.  Please check back on this site for updates on our intake status for other community members.

If you do not have a family doctor or health care provider, and are part of our priority population, we invite you to contact our New Client Intake Coordinator at 519-821-6638 extension 404.

When our intake hold is lifted, the Guelph Community Health Centre welcomes clients who:

  • Live in Brant, Two Rivers, Onward Willow, Grange Hill East and West Willow Village neighbourhoods.
  • Are newcomers to Canada, or members of the LGBTQ+ or First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities.
  • Experience barriers to health including homelessness or unstable housing, mental health challenges or addictions, language or cultural barriers, low income or poverty.

At that time, please connect with us via the New Client Intake Coordinator at 519-821-6638 Ext 404.
