Ottawa Newcomer Health Centre Launches New Website

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

You can now find the Ottawa Newcomer Health Centre (ONHC) on the web! 

The ONHC, an initiative of Somerset West Community Health Centre, is pleased to officially launch its website – – to connect immigrants and refugees, sponsors, and healthcare workers with its programs and services and to provide quality information about health resources in Ottawa.

The website has extensive information about the three services provided by the ONHC – interpretation, medical care, and health navigation – and how to access them, as well as information on how to get settled into the Canadian health care system. Not sure how to find dental care? It’s on the website. Not sure how to apply for health insurance? It’s on the website too. Many other useful tips and tricks to get started in Canada are also at!

What’s more – the website is available in a wide variety of languages so those who don’t speak English or French can begin to navigate the health system themselves, in the comfort of their own language.
