About this Program
Free in-person and virtual programs that address access to information, resources and supports for residents of Scarborough and the GTA.
Virtual Health & Wellness Programs offer education and information on a range of health topics to address the determinants of health. Our focus is to help our community members maintain optimal health by shifting their health outcomes. We promote healthy lifestyles and teach practices that develop healthy eating habits, physical fitness and supports to manage, cope with and prevent chronic illness. Workshops provide opportunities for learning, teaching, building new skills and peer support.
Programs are open to adults and older adults, call for more information.
