Who We Serve
The Greater Hamilton Health Network is Proud to Serve Hamilton, Haldimand, Niagara North West and the many attributed populations and people who seek services in our areas.
Each OHT across the province is responsible for an attributed population.
Attribution is a process for determining the Ontario residents that an Ontario Health Team (OHT) will be clinically and fiscally accountable for. The attributed population for an OHT refers to the total patient population of Network or Networks that best align to the OHT.
The work of the Greater Hamilton Health Network and its Partnership Council members takes place on traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississaugas. Indigenous people who have lived here since time immemorial and have deep connections to these lands.
This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississauga of the Credit First Nation.
The GHHN catchment area continues to be home to vibrant, diverse Indigenous communities who have distinct and specific histories and needs, as well as a constitutionally protected treaty. The GHHN is located next to Six Nations of the Grand River and Mississaugas of the Credit but most Indigenous peoples in the GHHN catchment area live in urban Hamilton. We honour this diversity and respect the knowledge, leadership, and governance frameworks within Indigenous communities.
We are grateful for the opportunity to live, meet, work, and are committed to engaging and building meaningful relationships and partnerships with the Indigenous communities, Six Nations of the Grand River, Mississaugas of the Credit and Urban Indigenous populations on this territory.
