Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, Living Healthy Champlain coordinates, promotes and facilitates self-management programs across the Champlain Local Health Integration Network.

Self-management programs seek to empower individuals to cope with disease and live better quality lives by developing self-efficacy or a level of confidence in their ability to manage their own chronic conditions and interactions with the health care system and individual providers. Living Healthy Champlain provides a centralized program to improve coordination of and access to self-management supports, programs and resources for people with chronic conditions.


Volunteer Opportunities

Peer Leader Training is four 8-hour days. This training will consist of two days the first week (June 11, 12, 2018) and two the following week (June 18, 19, 2018). Training will be held in English.

Workshop Leaders are dedicated community volunteers who empower participants to better manage their chronic conditions and to live a healthy life. Leaders typically have first-hand experience with a chronic condition themselves. They apply and model self-management skills in their own lives. Leaders may be lay people or health care professionals. Regardless, they act as peers when leading the workshop, not as health experts. Two Peer Leaders always work together to deliver the workshops.
