Migrant Agricultural Workers (MAWs) employed in the Niagara Region face a variety of issues in accessing primary health care services. In March 2014, the HNHB LHIN approved funding to provide MAWs health services throughout the Niagara Region. Using an interdisciplinary team approach in collaboration with community partners (e.g. Niagara Migrant Agricultural Workers Interest Group, McMaster University, Southridge, Brock University Community Outreach Course), Quest provides accessible, high quality care through Points of Services in both East and West Niagara. Quest CHC’s MAWP incorporates primary health care services, health promotion and community capacity building initiatives. All program areas were developed in collaboration with local community stakeholders. Services are currently delivered in Vineland, Virgil, Beamsville and at farm visits.
