Who we are
Grace Health Centre was established in 1986 to serve patients in northwest GTA; with a particular desire to help under-served individuals within its community. We serve our diverse patients with genuine respect and love irrespective of their language, religion, culture and background. Our patient population includes new immigrants, low-income families and vulnerable individuals.
Too often, patients who suffer from physical and mental illness need more than just prescribed medications to address the root problem of their illness; those problems can be emotional, relational and/or spiritual in nature. At Grace Health Centre, we thrive with energy to see our patients experience deep, long-lasting healing through our holistic approach. Would you like to join us in making an impact within our community?

Our vision has always emphasized on caring for our patients’ complete well-being, which includes the physical, mental, relational and spiritual needs. We believe that when we also explore the psycho-spiritual needs of a patient – it often brings about deep, permanent healing that spans into both the physical and mental wellness of our patients. Varying psychotherapy modalities such as CBT, DBT, EFT, EMDR and AEDP are leveraged within our practice.
