Indigenous Services

Virtual care connects First Nations patients across the province with culturally sensitive primary care, specialized care and urgent care.

Indigenous Services | Virtual Care for Indigenous Communities: Content

Whether patients live in an on or off-reserve community, including remote fly-in communities, or in an urban area, they can connect with a doctor or specialist who delivers 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.
