Le centre de santé communautaire du Témiskaming, New Liskeard


The Centre de santé communautaire du Témiskaming (CSCT) developed a new hub building to house its main administration, a community health centre, the community mental health offices of the local Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) and a day program for a consumer-survivor self-help group.


The new facility includes specially designed team work areas, specialized medical space meeting infection control standards, accessible spaces throughout the building and an expansion area for existing and new programs. Shared spaces and resources include reception, waiting and other common areas, meeting rooms, videoconferencing and building services. Provisions for confidentiality and sound attenuation were integrated into the design and construction.


The centre plays a leading role in the delivery of francophone health services and mental health services to north-eastern Ontario. Primary health care, counselling, chiropody, nutrition and food preparation programs, community health promotion, Early Years and youth programs are all offered from the site. A CMHA Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT) and a psychiatrist are also based at the hub. The building has created greater visibility for the agencies and has increased community awareness of the programs and services available through the hub.


The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provided capital funding for this project.
