The East Mississauga CHC is an exciting growth of the
Lakeshore Area Multiservice Project Community Health and
Social Services (LAMP CHC).
CHC has provided health and social services to
the South Etobicoke area for over 30 years, and is
pleased to be welcomed into the East Mississauga
The need for a Community Health Centre has long been on
the agenda of many social and community service
organizations in East Mississauga. In 2002, the East
Mississauga Inter-agency Group developed a proposal that
clearly identified the growing need for a community
health center to fulfill the needs of underserved
populations, and partner with the wealth of diversity in
East Mississauga to advocate for issues that matter to
our entire community.
Until the East Mississauga CHC opened, none of the 54 operating CHCs or satellites serviced Mississauga. With the growing population of Peel, particularly in Mississauga, the need for integrated and inclusive approaches to health is greater than ever. The East Mississauga CHC works with local organizations, groups, and individuals to strengthen residents’ access to a range of health and social services to keep you healthy.
The CHC will be a gathering and meeting point for many
members of the community from different walks of life.
With many different ethnic, social, and racial
communities in East Mississauga, our goal is to provide
a healthy place for interaction and build on the
resources of a diverse population. We aim to provide
services that respond to the assorted needs of
residents, as well as unifying diverse groups in a
common goal: creating a healthier East Mississauga!
