Who We Are

Mount Carmel Clinic

Who We Are

Mount Carmel Clinic is a community health centre based in the North End neighbourhood in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

We provide a wide variety of health services in order to address all aspects of a person’s wellbeing, including access to quality health care, community resources and family supports, child care, mental health supports, cultural opportunities, and much more.

Mount Carmel Clinic is Canada’s first community health centre, and helped forge the model of community-focused healthcare practiced from a social equity approach.

Our History

As Canada’s first and longest running community health centre, Mount Carmel Clinic has been providing grassroots health services to the North End community since 1926. During that time, the clinic has helped to shape the model for community health, and continues to grow and evolve to adapt to the community’s changing needs. Our overall purpose, however, remains the same: to provide non-judgemental care to those who need it most.

The population in this neighbourhood is diverse, with a large number of Indigenous and Newcomer families, and we do our best to ensure that the staff and programs at Mount Carmel Clinic reflect the community we work alongside.


We work from a harm-reduction, pro-choice, trauma-informed lens, and we base our practice and services on the social determinants of health.
