Your Impact on the Community

The Cobequid Health Centre Foundation is dedicated to making a difference in the community by raising the necessary funds to expand the services we are able to offer at the Cobequid Centre. Since 2006 an amount totalling $1.4 million dollars in equipment has been purchased. At the Foundation we know that the Cobequid Community Health Centre exists due to the generosity of the community. We thank you for your continuous support! Together we have truly made a difference.
