Health Matters

Health care in Elliot Lake is provided primarily by St. Joseph's General Hospital - an accredited hospital with exceptional medical facilities.  Hospital care is supplemented by a family health care team, one long term care facility, two retirement homes, an addictions rehabilitation centre and a wide variety of community health support services.  Specialists hold frequent clinics in Elliot Lake, reducing the need to travel for specialized care.  Elliot Lake is also central to world class care through the Sudbury Regional Hospital and Sault Area Hospital - both housed in brand new, state-of-the-art facilities.

Physician recruitment activities are undertaken so that the high level of service that our residents have come to expect are maintained well into the future.  There is a wide range of social service organizations as well as provincial and national wellness organizations to meet the needs of the community.


Elliot Lake's education system offers students a first rate learning experience.  The city is home to five elementary schools providing English, French and immersion programs.  There are also two high schools in the community (one French, one English) that offer students extracurricular and athletic opportunities in a high-spirited atmosphere.  For young children, both French and English daycare facilities are located in Elliot Lake.
