Maison Vale Hospice provides 24-hour care in a tranquil, homelike setting to more than 100 residents per year.  The 11,000 square foot residential hospice is located on the site of St. Joseph's Village of Care on South Bay Road, in proximity of Laurentian University and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.  It looks like a large home situated in a serene natural environment on the shores of Bethel Lake.


Residents can occupy one of 10 private bedrooms equipped with special comfort beds, individual bathrooms, and bay windows designed to bring the outside world of sky and water into the world inside.  The facility also offers a family room, a children's room, a sacred space, living & dining areas, laundry facilities, office space, and an outside deck overlooking Bethel Lake.  Residents are able to see the sunrise over Bethel Lake and the sun go down over Ramsey Lake.

Our goal is your goal – to have our clients live independent, productive and happy lives.


We are a non-profit organization that provides a variety of services, resources and support systems in both official languages. Our services include post stroke transitioning, supportive housing, outreach services, temporary housing, detailed assessments and progressive independence training.


ICAN has a distinguished history in the Greater Sudbury area. We were established back in 1977, the dream of a two person committee of the local parent Association for Cerebral Palsy and other physical handicaps. Since then, we have grown and flourished. Today, we have over 100 employees and have helped more than a thousand people since we first opened our doors.

Sudbury is recognized as the regional health care center for Northeastern Ontario.  Everyday, there are people throughout the north who must come to Sudbury by air ambulance, car, bus, plane or train to receive the care they need at our hospitals.


As well, our state of the art Cancer Treatment Center and Cardiac / Thoracic Center are recognized across North America as providing highly professional services.  Now people need only travel to Sudbury rather than Toronto to obtain the level of care that they require.


In 1986, the Sudbury Kinsmen Club formed a foundation to assist in providing low cost accommodation to family members of medical patients who travel to our community for treatment.


The facility consists of a two story motel with thirty two rooms, a restaurant and a cozy lounge.  The House of Kin is in close proximity to the Sudbury Regional Hospital. Also, we are in walking distance to drug stores, shopping malls, grocery stores and many other amenities that will assist our guests in experiencing a suitable home away from home.  Our convenient location results in providing a far more comfortable and less stressful level of support.


Medical science now recognizes that a patient improves much faster when supported on a daily basis by family and relatives.  However, many families find it difficult to provide this support because of the stress of the situation and the additional financial burden of living expenses that they will experience.


Now a family member can be accommodated in our facility at a more reasonable rate and can concentrate most of their energies on giving support to those who need it the most.

Meals On Wheels has been serving the Sudbury area with high quality, home-cooked meals over 40 years. What originally started out as a 3-month Pilot Project in November of 1971 has become one of Sudbury's most trusted in-home food delivery services.


Since its inception, Meals On Wheels (Sudbury) has continued to serve the community, as well as promote independence and enhance the lives of many of its clients. Without the tireless effort and determination of the following founding members, Meals on Wheels (Sudbury) would not be the success it is today.

The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) is a beloved institution that’s widely recognized for being an anchor in our community. The CHEO Research Institute is the research arm of CHEO that works to create new knowledge and evidence to help provide the world-class care that CHEO is known for.


Research at CHEO covers a full spectrum of pediatric topics, but is focused on those problems that significantly affect the health of our children, including cancer, diabetes, obesity, mental health, emergency medicine, musculoskeletal health, and genetic conditions, to name a few.


It’s a privilege to lead the innovative and dedicated team of clinical researchers, lab scientists, and staff that the CHEO Research Institute attracts. Our investigators mentor many of the best and brightest students from the University of Ottawa and across the country. I am constantly impressed with their passion and devotion to the mission of improving the health of children and youth.
