HEALTH CENTRE

The Biigtigong Nishnaabeg Mno-zhi-yaawgamig (formerly known as the Pic River Health Centre) is a Federally funded, community based program. The Program focuses mainly on health promotion and prevention strategies. The community signed a Health Transfer Agreement with the Medical Services Branch of Health & Welfare Canada in May of 1997. This agreement allows for increased autonomy in determining what types of health care services are required to meet the needs of community members.

Through the Health Centre, a variety of staff are employed and work in conjunction with other programs within the community such as Recreation, Social Services, Family Support & Personal Support Worker Program. The program focuses mainly on health promotion and prevention strategies with minor treatment also provided.
