OHSNI was proud to be part of the recent opening of Aakuluk – a clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. It brings together medical specialists and support personnel like OHSNI interpreters to treat patients from the North more efficiently and in a culturally sensitive way. The clinic is the first of its kind in Canada.

In March 2017, Emma was out horse riding through some woods when she was involved in a serious accident. Whist attempting to jump over a fence, Emma’s horse lost balance and fell directly on top of her. The sheer force of the impact caused Emma’s pelvis to break in four places, as well as completely shattering her shoulder.
Due to the location of the incident and severity of Emma’s injuries, the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance was dispatched directly to the scene. Our helicopter landed in the nearest clearing of the woods before the crew rushed to Emma’s side.

My mother was at hospital and did not have a family escort. But Donna was there the whole time with her, keeping me in contact via text messages. I just want to thank OSHNI and her for her amazing work. I am not sure what she would have done without her help and assistance.”
