What we do
Man Receiving Food from Man


For persons experiencing homelessness, there are daily challenges associated with the Social Determinants of Health, including food insecurity, inadequate housing, financial security and poor health.

The  BBNOHT Homelessness Working Group advocates to lessen the impact of these challenges by increasing access to primary care, housing and preventative programs.

Mental Health & Addiction

It is estimated that over 30,000 people in our community may require some level of mental health support in a given year. This number has only been amplified in the past few years by factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The BBNOHT and our community partners strive to increase access to mental health programs for all who need them. 


In 2019 it was estimated that 3,741 people in Brantford/Brant live with dementia, cared for by 6,000 individuals whose own well-being is impacted by demands of their role as a caregiver.

The OHT is working to connect providers from various organizations in order to improve quality of care, enhance caregiver access to coping tools and respite, and decrease the need for repeat emergency visits.

Digital Health

One of the OHT's top priorities is to work towards a more digitally enabled healthcare system in our community. We plan to use technology and automation so that you can see your health care provider from the comfort of your own home! This also means enhanced sharing of information between hospital and primary care, giving you faster access to your own health information.

Without a doubt, the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated pressures on the Canadian healthcare system. In response, all health service providers have had to adapt in how they provide service, and partner in new ways to ensure we are providing the best possible support to the community.
