Welcome to Stonegate Community Health Centre
Stonegate CHC has been providing primary health care, health promotion and a wide variety of community programs to the Stonegate-Parklawn Community since it was created by community members in 1992.
Our Mission is to work with this community to improve its well-being.
We provide comprehensive, co-ordinated, primary health care, illness prevention and health promotion for individuals, families, groups as well as community-level interventions. Our dedicated team of professionals provide coordinated programs and services aimed at maintaining wellness and improving health of people of all ages.
I love Stonegate; it is the best thing that ever happened to this community. The programs really helped me when I was sick because they provided enjoyable activities where I could get out of the house, meet people, and become more sociable. It truly has something for everyone –seniors and kids programs, doctors and nurses – along with a very multicultural environment. Julie

There have been 12 cases of measles in Ontario since January 2014. Some of these involve people from the Greater Toronto Area who travelled to South East Asia or Europe. Others did not travel but got sick with measles after coming into contact with people who did.
If you or your children have not yet been vaccinated against measles, we strongly urge you to consider doing so. Measles poses significant health risks to very young children, people with chronic illnesses and pregnant women who have not been immunized. We have heard that on average, a person with measles can infect 15 other people, compared to a person with the flu who infects on average 2 other people. Complications of measles can include death.
We have included the most up-to-date information about measles and the measles vaccine with this letter. If you believe you or your children have been exposed to measles, please call us immediately at (416) 231?7070. If you need to be vaccinated, please book an appointment. We can answer your questions and provide the care that you need, including give vaccinations.

Message from Bev Leaver, Executive Director, Stonegate CHC
Stonegate Community Health Centre is still here and will stay here to serve this community. The rest of Stonegate Plaza has been emptied out and is being prepared for demolition. We were very sad to see the closure of the Stonegate Outreach Store as we value the contribution of the Stonegate Ecumenical Community in addressing the needs in this community. The Outreach Store provided a way for community members to donate things they no longer needed and others to buy things at a price they could afford. The Store also provided meaningful volunteer positions for community members. The loss of the Store will be felt widely.
We are expecting to see demolition starting soon and proceeding over the next couple of months. Stonegate CHC will lose our Annex location that houses our Dental Clinic and all of our children’s and family programs. We do not yet have a date for when that site will close. We are working toward relocating the Dental Clinic and some after school programming into our main site. We have secured classrooms in St. Mark’s School to hold our children’s programs over the summer and Christ Church St. James has generously offered to accommodate some of our Early Years Programs and to host, once again, our weekly Farmer’s Market.
The developer, VanDyk Group of Companies continues to work with Stonegate CHC to support us staying here to serve this community. They will demolish around us and leave Stonegate CHC standing. We are also working toward Stonegate CHC’s long term home on this site above the future grocery store.
This is a time of significant and disruptive change. We will all have to make some compromises in order to keep our services running as best we can. We greatly appreciate the generosity of support that we have received from this community and hope that we can count on your continued support to keep Stonegate CHC here, where it belongs.
