Sanctuary Refugee Health Centre

SRHC is a health clinic located in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.  It provides health services for refugees in the Kitchener-Waterloo region.  We are now open 4 days per week to serve our roster of 1850+ newcomer refugees in our region.  Because of our limited resources, we can only accept new patients who are recently arrived refugees who do not already have a family doctor.  Others may apply to be put on the waiting list.


The centre evolved out of collaborative efforts from many community partners.  Please see our Links page for more information on who else is operating in the KW area.
