Recovery Day Ottawa


Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall.

During the month of September, Canadians are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.

We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives.

Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us. Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

Champlain Local Health Integration Network

The Champlain Local Health Integration Network’s (LHIN) mandate is to ensure health services are well-organized, appropriately funded, and meet the health needs of the 1.3 million residents who call this region home.

We work with and fund roughly 120 health service providers that offer about 240 health programs in hospitals, community support services, mental health and addiction service agencies, community health centres, and long-term care homes.

As of May 24, 2017, the Champlain LHIN also delivers home and community care services (to learn more, please click here). We provide a wide range of health care services and resources to support 58,000+ patients each year at home, at school or in the community. Our patient-care coordination teams help develop care plans for people of all ages, focused on maintaining independence and dignity at home and in their community.

Champlain is Ontario’s easternmost LHIN, and shares a 465-km-long border with Quebec. Some of our population's unique characteristics include:

  • One in five residents lives in a rural area
  • One in five residents is Francophone
  • One in six residents reports using a language other than English and French (most common are Chinese [several languages combined], Arabic, and Italian).
  • There are two First Nations communities: Akwesasne (near Cornwall, and the second-most populous reserve in Canada), and Pikwàkanagàn (Renfrew County). Over two-thirds of Aboriginal peoples live off-reserve.
