On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Healthier Communities, I invite you to share with us in issuing an enthusiastic welcome to our new Chief Executive Officer, Sarah Hobbs

Greetings everyone,
 
It is my pleasure to send this message as the new Chair of the Alliance of Healthier Communities. After serving on the Alliance Board as a vice-chair for the past year, I am honoured to take on this important position and I want to thank my predecessor, Claudia den Boer, for her leadership and commitment to advancing health equity through comprehensive primary health care.
 

The Alliance for Healthier Communities Board of Directors and staff join the Hamilton Urban Core Community Health Centre (HUCCHC) team in mourning the passing of Executive Director, Denise Brooks. For more than 25 years, Denise led HUCCHC and played a crucial role in Ontario’s community health sector. She was a titan of the sector, her voice and vision will be greatly missed.

The Alliance for Healthier Communities is a network of community-governed primary health care organizations. Alliance members serve diverse communities across the province. They share a commitment to advancing health equity through the delivery of comprehensive primary health care.

The Alliance for Healthier Communities is the voice of a vibrant network of over 100 community-governed primary health care organizations, including Community Health Centres, Aboriginal Health Access Centres, Nurse-Practitioner-Led Clinics and Community Family Health Teams. Members of the Alliance share a commitment to advancing health equity through the delivery of comprehensive primary health care.

Dear Hon. Deputy Minister Menard, Dr. Huyer and Mr. Anderson,

We write to you to highlight the urgent need for a broad province-wide strategy to protect the health of migrant agricultural workers during the COVID-19 crisis. A growing number of outbreaks in the migrant worker communities and two deaths in the Windsor-Essex area have made it clear that this group is one of the most at-risk in Ontario.

Over the past week – and the weeks, months and years before this – we at the Alliance for Healthier Communities have seen the impact of historical and present-day racism, inequity, violence and inaction on our member organizations and the communities they serve.

Our communities are grieving.

This moment is unprecedented, yet in many ways, we have been here before.
