Virtual Care for Indigenous Communities | Indigenous Services: Content

Whether you’re living in an on-or off-reserve community, including remote fly-in communities, or in an urban area, you can connect with a doctor or specialist and receive culturally sensitive care through real-time video.

OTN partners with Keewaytinook Okimakanak eHealth Telemedicine Services (KOeTS), the Chiefs of Ontario, the Trilateral First Nations Health Senior Officials Committee, and the Metis Nation of Ontario to provide faster, easier access to health care.
