Health & Social Services Department

Working together to provide quality social and public health services, affordable housing and long term care in our communities.

Vision Statement

The Health & Social Services Department will be recognized as a leader in the delivery of innovative and effective services to enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and play in our communities.

Community Awakening to Poverty

In order to raise awareness of poverty in Haldimand and Norfolk, members of our communities participated in a project to live on a food hamper for one week. Their experiences were documented and recorded in a public blog.

The Health and Social Services Department Consists of Four Divisions

  • Health Unit - Haldimand-Norfolk
  • NorView Lodge
  • Haldimand & Norfolk Social Services
  • Social Housing - Haldimand & Norfolk

The provincial government mandates the majority of services provided by the Health and Social Services Department. They ensure the health and welfare of the population as a whole and especially vulnerable populations. The services of the Health Unit, Social Housing and Social Services are provided through one Department to both Haldimand County and Norfolk County. Services are delivered to both Counties, in a number of office locations and cost shared.

The Health and Social Services Department welcomes your feedback on accessibility and delivery of our services.
