About Us

The Middlesex-London Health Unit is a key part of the local health system.

Our goal is to watch for, identify and address the public health issues that can affect you, your family and your neighbours. We promote healthy living and identify community needs. Health Unit staff members work in schools and in immunization clinics; they work with families to support their needs; they also inspect restaurants and businesses that sell food, swimming pools, tattoo shops, hairdressers, nail salons, spas and more. In addition, members of this team of professionals provide dental services to people who need them, do research in our communities and work with politicians and decision makers to create bylaws and guidelines that lead to healthier communities.

We are committed to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and communities.

We acknowledge our obligation to improve the health and wellness outcomes of Indigenous people in our region, and are committed to taking action to bring about change. We do this by building staff capacity to deliver culturally safe services, cultivating equitable and productive relationships with Indigenous partners, addressing racially-based health inequities by disrupting colonial practices within and outside our organization, and by building an organizational culture of humility and accountability through ongoing learning, thoughtful policy, and practice that is informed by multiple evidence sources. We continue to work towards full implementation of Taking Action for Reconciliation: An Organizational Plan for the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

Programs and Services

Like the other 35 health units in Ontario, the Middlesex-London Health Unit delivers programs and services that are part of the Health Protection and Promotion Act (HPPA) to the people who live in London and Middlesex County. The Health Unit does this according to a set of rules called the Ontario Public Health Standards.



The Health Unit provides these services and programs at its office in downtown London and in Strathroy. The downtown London office is at 355 Wellington St., London, ON (inside Citi Plaza). This is where you can get immunized, access dental health programs, sexual health and family planning services and also where you can take several classes and workshops. Many of these services are also offered at the Health Unit’s Strathroy office located 51 Front St. E, Strathroy, ON (inside The Shops on Sydenham).
