Information about CLSCs
LOCAL COMMUNITY SERVICE CENTRES (Centre local de soins communautaires)
A CLSC provides basic health and social services, as well as rehabilitation or reintegration services to individuals residing in its geographical area. It advises them on, or refers them to, those resources most able to be of assistance to them. CLSCs are the access point to the regional network of health and social services. Some CLSCs have medical clinics offering the same services as most private clinics. CLSCs offer:
- Intake, assessment and orientation
- Basic health and social services for youth, families and the elderly
- Dental and nursing care in schools
- Home care and assistance
- Mental health services
- Industrial health and safety
- Community action
- Information, referral and health advice
