Once a month, Wellness Practitioners donate their time and expertise providing “pay-what-you-can-afford” treatments. All member-owners receive an advance email with information on the modalities available that month. Contributions are made to the Creating Community Wellness Society’s Health Access Fund. Member-owners can receive a charitable donation tax receipt for their contribution.
The Health Access Fund
The contributions collected at the Members’ Wellness Clinics are held in the Health Access Fund which is administered by the Creating Community Wellness Society. Members can request support from this Fund to help them access a course of treatments they could not otherwise afford.

Choices for a Healthy Lifestyle is a very simple and enjoyable program. We plan every series of 4 to 6 topics with a representative from the host organization and, if possible, potential participants. Each session includes a nutritious snack, a short presentation, discussion, social time, sometimes a hand-out. Most importantly, we encourage the participants to share their own expertise and knowledge.
Addressing a community wellness need – for many years healthcare professionals and policy makers have known that we need an Integrated Health and Wellness approach, not merely medical services. We need to knock down the silos to let the full range of community members and professionals stretch their knowledge and work together. This is the path to reaching as many individuals and communities as possible, affordably and effectively.
Co-op Cookbook Project
Our planned project for an online, updateable, cookbook. This excellent idea was proposed at the Annual General Meeting in March. We hope people will be interested in bringing it to reality, possibly nutrition and cooking enthusiasts and people who understand how to put it on-line.

Intro to Co-ops
What is a co-op? We are planning to start offering, in the fall, short info sessions on co-operatives, what they are, what we do, the legalities, history, fun – really whatever can increase interest and understanding. Here we are really fortunate! Bruce has offered to think about topics, contact potential discussion leaders from co-ops across our region. What topics would you like to see covered?

Partnering with James Bay Pharmasave: Wellness Education
Working with the James Bay Pharmasave to present Wellness Education sessions.
We look forward to having use, from time to time, courtesy of Pharmasave, to the former library space at the James Bay Community Project. Our hope is to use this space for wellness education, probably co-presenting with Pharmasave, for the Our Co-op Community series, and other regular and one-time events.
