School health

Our school health program provides immunizations as well as health and referral information to school-aged children, staff and parents. Nurses also provide referrals for a variety of assessments such as dental, auditory, speech, nutrition and mental health. Individual health consultations are provided by a nurse.

Each year we publish school health manuals to help school staff access health-care services for school-aged children and youth. View the online manual for your region below:
