Welcome to the Newcomer Child and Family Health Libraries!
The Newcomer Child and Family Health Libraries were created to offer a “one stop shop” to link
children, youth, families, and providers of healthcare information to existing online
information that may be especially helpful for newcomer families.
Information in the three libraries is organized into
Asked Questions (FAQs) aimed to help you find health care information,
services and programs you may need as a newcomer to Toronto. The Newcomer Child and Family
Health Libraries are currently only available in English. Where possible, links to information in other languages have been provided.
You can use the buttons along the top and the bottom of this page to navigate between the three Health Libraries and back to the home page.
