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 role in improving the health and wellness outcomes of Indigenous people in our region, and in sharing what we have learned to effect greater 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.
