Who We Are
Champlain Community Support Network (CCSN) represents more than 40 non-profit community health service providers across Eastern Ontario. Our bilingual network works to create a community where seniors and adults living with disabilities can live independently, safely, and comfortably at home.
What We Do
CCSN works in partnership to build strong, responsive, and seamless systems of community support health services, where clients and caregivers can receive the care they need. We have four main initiatives.
Assemble and Mobilize
CCSN Strives to provide our member agencies and their programs with meaningful and effective opportunities to work together.
Access to Care
We aim to offer pathways to services and care to our community that are clear, seamless, and
equitable for all.
Amplify and Influence
The future of health care will rely on community health supports to sustain and maintain service, and community support services must be a leader in driving healthcare’s traditional boundaries into a new era. Our goal is to promote CSS as the first line in primary community care and the solution to best support people living at home and in the community.
Create opportunities for cross-sectoral, interprofessional partnerships, collaborations, and communications to ensure clients and families have the choice to remain in the community and at home.
Reconciliation, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement and Action Plan
The Champlain Community Support Network is committed to fostering an inclusive culture that is reflective of the diversity of the communities we serve, and the Canadian population.
We do not tolerate and will actively respond to all forms of discrimination. We will work to create environments that are free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and disrespectful behaviour and attitudes towards clients, staff, volunteers, and community members.
We acknowledge the role charitable services and healthcare has played in the past, and currently has, in supporting and perpetuating colonization, biased care, and maintaining systemic racism. CCSN is committed to our role and responsibility to foster authentic individual, community, and systemic equity, diversity, and inclusivity, and create safe and meaningful spaces and relationships.
CCSN will activate and maintain a Reconciliation, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Group that will develop and implement initiatives aimed at promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion, and taking accountable action towards reconciliation.
