Health Services

At the direction of the Chiefs of the Participating First Nations, the Fort Frances Chiefs Secretariat has facilitated the amalgamation of Addictions, Mental Health and Primary Care services into a single Tribal Health Authority.

As a new single organization, the Tribal Health Authority provides the same services that the three separate organizations did previously. Ultimately, the goal of the amalgamation is to take advantage of shared efficiencies, through coordination of service delivery for clients. The depth of capacity built by the amalgamation provides a better overall level of care for all clients.
