The importance of health is parallel to none; it affects our bodies, minds and communities.

Unfortunately such a sizeable healthcare system can be complicated and confusing to navigate. The NDG community council has put together a directory of health services available in the borough as well as an FAQ section to answer some general question about the healthcare system here in Québec.
