Open for Virtual Visits & Limited In-Person Care
With the stay-at-home order in effect in Ontario as of 12:01 a.m. on April 8th, 2021, the College of Naturopaths of Ontario has confirmed that naturopathic health services can remain open and that no additional restrictions have been placed on health professionals at this time. The Chief Medical Office of Health’s Directive #2, the Ministry of Health COVID-19 Operational Requirements: Health Sector Restart, and the College’s Reopening Guidelines continue to apply to all NDs in Ontario.
The Centre for Health Innovation is open for limited in-person care with select services where the health of our patients is best supported by in-person care. In doing so, we are operating under COVID-19 regulations provided by the Ministry of Health, the College of Naturopaths of Ontario, and specified guidelines for regulated health care professions.
For those booked for in-person care, patients will be required to complete an online COVID questionnaire within 24 hours prior to coming to the clinic and to pass screening.
We recommend patients continue to use our telemedicine platform (secure video or phone) for consultations whenever it is safe and effective to do so. In-person appointments will be reserved for care that cannot be provided by telemedicine.
Please do not show-up at the clinic without a scheduled appointment.
To help keep the clinic safe for patients and staff, we have a screening process prior to all in-person visits.
When you call to book your appointment (613-792-1222), we will review the requirements of our screening process, what to bring, and what to expect when you arrive at the clinic.

Our yoga therapist, psychotherapist, and hypnotherapist continue to provide care through telemedicine.
We also continue to offer online programs detailed below for mindfulness, yoga, meditation and support groups, free of charge, through Zoom.
If you require any natural health products or herbal teas/tinctures recommended by one of your practitioners, you may continue to use our online dispensary, or you may call our clinic directly for curbside pickup or delivery.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these challenging times.
