CHCs are non-profit primary care organizations that provide integrated health care and social services, with a focus on addressing the social determinants of health. They provide team-based interprofessional health care that includes a range of health care and social service providers, including social workers, family physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, occupational therapists, clinical pharmacists, physiotherapists, respiratory therapists, cross-cultural health brokers, First Nations elders, mental health counsellors, and outreach workers, among others. CHCs are community-governed and responsive to the patients/members they serve. Learn more by visiting the BC Association of Community Health Centers website.
