Stay safe during the winter

Winter Maintenance Tips

In the winter months, it is crucial to stay alert and in control, as extreme cold temperatures can be a hazard to personal safety, and special precautions are required. Be prepared and ensure your safety this winter season with these winter maintenance tips.

Health Care Options

Know Your Healthcare Options

During the months of November to May, flu and other illnesses spread in our communities. As we celebrate the holiday season, people gather in larger groups, they travel, and attend events that create opportunities for illnesses to spread.

Niagara Health System, Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre, and Niagara Region Public Health are working together to help the public better understand the options available for healthcare during the holiday season and winter months.

Learn more about the campaign and the healthcare options available to you.
