Who Can Benefit
Northern Ontario covers over 800,000 square kms. of land with a population of 840,000 people. With vast distances between communities, videoconferencing (VC) plays a pivotal role in bringing people and resources together throughout the North. Across the North we host 39 VC sites which is a 44% growth since 2009! As members of the North Network, northerners experience enhanced access to specialized services and professional education in their local communities.
Coordination and Delivery of Specialized Services
- Assessment, consultation and treatment services are delivered by our North Network Clinicians across the northern region utilizing a multidisciplinary approach. VC is our primary method of service delivery!
- Specialized Accommodations is a short term treatment service. In our northern communities, the model of delivery emphasizes enhanced specialized services in a person’s home or in one of our six locations in the north as required.
