Carefirst Seniors and Community Services Association is a leading organization for the Ontario government’s High Priority Communities Strategy – a community-driven initiative in response to COVID-19 that enables us to collaborate with other community service partner organizations to provide more equitable, culturally appropriate supports and services focused on our three identified key priorities.
This includes, but is not limited to, increased access to testing and vaccination, promoting and removing barriers to women’s preventative care and primary care, and increased access to culturally appropriate community mental health education, counselling, and service navigation in Southeast Markham.
