Your Community Care Access Centre connects you with the care you need, at home and in your community. We provide access to home, community and school health services, facilitate placement into long-term care homes, and provide information and referral to a broad range of community-based health programs and services in Northeastern Ontario.

The North East CCAC employs 670 staff members serving approximately 16,000 clients on any given day.
The North East CCAC’s Board of Directors is comprised of twelve volunteer members who reflect the geographic and demographic diversity of Northeastern Ontario. The Board employs a Quality Governance Approach to the governance of a community care organization through a focus on policy development, decision-making and oversight.
