Since 2008, East Mississauga CHC has been provided medical and social services to the East Mississauga Community! EMCHC is a satellite site of the Lakeshore Area Multiservice Project Community Health and Social Services (LAMP CHC), which has provided health and social services to the South Etobicoke area for nearly 40 years!
In 2002, the East Mississauga Inter-agency Group developed a proposal that clearly identified the growing need for a community health center. The purpose of the this centre was to fulfill the needs of underserved populations in partnership with other agencies in Mississauga and Peel to advocate for issues that matter to our entire community.
Until the East Mississauga CHC opened, none of the 54 operating CHCs or satellites serviced Mississauga. With the growing population of Peel, particularly in Mississauga, the need for integrated and inclusive approaches to health is greater than ever. The East Mississauga CHC works with local organizations, groups, and individuals to strengthen residents’ access to a range of health and social services to keep individuals and communities, healthy.
