Ontario offers a free and confidential phone service - Telehealth Ontario - which you can use to talk to a Registered Nurse.

Telehealth Ontario is offered in English and French, with the ability to access support in 110 languages.

Individuals should call Telehealth if they have a general health question and have limited resources to seek help. A registered nurse will be able to answer your question in minutes and help guide you to the best course of action.

Individuals do NOT need to provide their health insurance number.

The nurses at Telehealth Ontario will listen to your health problems and will offer you advice on where to go for help.
