Provincial-Specific COVID-19 Resources

In Canada, the responsibility for public health, which includes infectious diseases containment and mitigation, is officially shared between the three orders of government: federal, provincial/territorial and local or municipal. However, in practice, provincial and territorial governments have most of the responsibility for delivering health and other social services. As a result, it can be confusing in a time of national crisis for people to know exactly who to call for assistance.

To direct people to the right level of care, and decrease the burden on the healthcare system, most provinces urges you to use their self-assessment tool first before calling or showing up in person at a COVID-19 assessment centre. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19,  contact your healthcare provider or use the directory below to find a province-specific contact.
