Tips for accessing care

Get organized

  • Write down symptoms, medications, and questions you have.

  • Have your health card, insurance, and any relevant medical documents ready.

  • Note: many services do not require a health card — reach out even if you don’t have one.

Find the right space

  • Move to a safe and quiet location.

  • Consider having a support person with you.

  • Note: if you’re not comfortable speaking over the phone, ask if virtual or in-person options are available.

Allow time

  • You may have to wait to access the services you need. You may be provided with other options to explore while you are waiting.
