Entering Our Circle of Care
When you become a SOAHAC client, you are welcomed into a culturally safe, wholistic circle of care. In this circle, you can access a variety of wellness services for mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. You might see a few or many members of our integrated care team.
Your first scheduled appointment to SOAHAC will be an intake appointment where we will discuss your wellness and collect information to help identify the most appropriate care for you and your family. You will be asked for proof of lineage in order to be eligible for our services. This can be a status card, proof of Métis registration, or a letter from the community that you are affiliated with.
Some groups and events are open to any community member and do not require you to be registered as a SOAHAC client or patient to participate. All services do require registration by filling out an intake form and having an intake appointment to become a new client or patient.
We encourage you to come drop in to your nearest SOAHAC location to gather information, pick up forms and brochures, and ask questions! We look forward to seeing you.
Your Intake Appointment
Please bring your health card, proof of Indigenous lineage (e.g., status card, Métis/Inuit registration, letter from your community) and a list of your medications to your intake appointment. If you have already started filling out the intake form, please bring a copy with you.
You should expect the intake appointment to last up to one hour, depending on your needs. We use this time to get to know you a bit more and address any wellness concerns you may have. You can also learn about all of the SOAHAC services that are available to you and your family.
