Health problem?

There are other options than the emergency rooms


Some facilities are closed for Thanksgiving, on October 14.

Health problems don’t only happen during times when you can reach your family doctor.

If you're sick or worried about your health or the health of a loved one during a statutory holiday, other options than the emergency room are available.

Info-Santé 8-1-1

Info-Santé nurses are available 24/7 to answer day-to-day health questions and guide you regarding when to seek medical help and where to go for help.


If you need to see a doctor, many clinics have long opening hours (12 hours a day) and are open weekends (8 hours a day). You can see a doctor, get x-rays or have blood tests, if your case is urgent.


You have a minor health problem? You have questions about your medications or an over-the-counter health product? A pharmacist can help!

Open or closed?


Need psychosocial support?

Are you feeling anxious or going through a difficult period? Call Info-Social at 8-1-1.

Info-Social is a free, confidential psychosocial helpline. A social worker will answer your questions, give you advice and direct you to the right resource, if necessary.
