With the cooler weather upon us and winter approaching, you are being reminded of the importance of following the Smoke-Free Ontario Act. The Smoke-Free Ontario Act prohibits the smoking of tobacco, the use of electronic cigarettes to vape any substance, and the smoking of cannabis in enclosed workplaces and enclosed public places to protect workers and the public from second-hand smoke and vapour. If people do experience smoking in their workplace, they can report it by submitting an anonymous claim by visiting takeyourbuttoutside.ca and your local health unit will launch an investigation. It’s not just employees who can submit a claim but members of the public can also report smoking in an enclosed space if they witness it. Any individual who violates the prohibition on smoking or vaping in smoke-free and vape-free areas may be charged and if convicted, may face a fine of up to $5000.

CCHC is pleased to introduce a new member to our team of primary care professionals and allied health professionals. Nafisa completed her Bachelor of Health Science with a specialization in health promotion at Western University and a Master of Public Health at the University of Guelph. “I am excited to play a positive role in the health of our clients and community members,” says Nafisa. “I hope to connect with our clients and community members to hear their health needs and promote partnerships with local organizations so that we can better serve the communities in our catchment area.” As a health promoter, Nafisa will look at the health needs of the clients and communities served by the CCHC, and determine programs and services that can slow or prevent the progression of disease as well as promoting healthy lifestyles. This can include creating programs or services that teach new skills, provide education, or provide harm reduction strategies on a variety of health issues such as mental health, chronic diseases, and substance use. The Central Community Health Centre located at 359 Talbot St. is a place for community members to access a team of health care professionals including doctors, registered practical nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, a dietician, chiropodist, physiotherapist, and more. The organization strives to empower clients and communities to achieve optimal health and wellbeing.
