Aboriginal Health Access Centres
How aboriginal communities can get primary health care, traditional healing and other services through Aboriginal Health Access Centres.
As of January 1, 2023, Ontarians will be able to stop in at pharmacies across the province to receive prescriptions for 13 common ailments, such as rashes, pink eye, insect bites or urinary tract infections with just their health card. This service makes it more convenient to access care by removing a doctor’s office visit and will come at no extra cost to Ontarians.
