New to Brantford/Brant? Start Here!

Our Brantford/Brant Workgroup has developed a START HERE presentation and wallet card to help newcomers know where to get information about services and other amenities in our community. Our team has been delivering presentations to groups in the area to let them know about the Start Here resources.

Our 2015 Council Presentations were a Success!

Presentations were made to Council in Brantford, Haldimand and Norfolk to update each municipality on our progress. The presentation focused on why "Immigration Matters" to municipalities, business and communities and asked each to continue their support. Our message was well received in all three municipalities and municipal representation on our Leadership Council and/or workgroups continues.

Thank you to Jill Halyk, Migdalia [Dally] Lowry, Camille Roberts and Eustace Orleans-Lindsay for representing GEIP. You did an amazing job presenting to Council.

The ability to access health care services is important to everyone. This document was prepared to:

  • Support the increase of primary health care services to seasonal agricultural workers, newcomers/immigrants and non-English speaking individuals.
  • Gather data, share information and identify specific recommendations.
  • Encourage continued discussions with existing and new stakeholders interested in supporting identified recommendations.

The document was distributed to a diverse group of stakeholders including: all members of the Norfolk Health Care Accessibility Committee, municipal/provincial/federal officials, local health care providers and the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).
