eskasoni community health centre

The First Nation community of Eskasoni in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia is the largest Mi’kmaq Reserve in the world. The community is engaged in a nationally-recognized model of integrated health planning and delivery. It is now regarded as one of the most successful and innovative primary care demonstration projects in the country.

Eskasoni is also a teaching site for the Dalhousie University Department of Family Medicine, which sends medical students and residents to the community clinic as part of their rural training experience.
