Medical appointments

In Quebec

Telemedicine services (available within Canada)

Telemedicine services offer 24/7, confidential virtual care, and are available to many Concordia student and employees. Health professionals including nurses, doctors and counsellors can provide diagnosis, prescriptions or referrals with virtual appointments. These services are best used for minor health issues that can be addressed within one consultation.

Across Canada
  • If you're located in Canada, you can use the Lumino Health search tool to find healthcare providers in your province or territory. Appointments are virtual and/or in-person. Use of the search tool is free, but providers do charge fees for their services.
  • Telehealth lines across Canada: Connect with a nurse or social worker 24/7 for advice and referrals to medical care in your area.
