The Bonjour-Hello logo for French-language health services
Health care professionals in private practice in Nova Scotia who speak French can use the Bonjour-Hello tools developed by Réseau Santé to let their patients know that they can be served in French. Employees of the Nova Scotia Health Authority and IWK Health Centre can use the tools from the Government of Nova Scotia’s Bonjour! program to show that they can serve patients in French.
A directory to find health care professionals who speak French
The Directory of French-speaking Health Professionals allows you to find more than 350 health care professionals working in over 30 professions in Nova Scotia who can serve you in French. You can use the directory to find a French-speaking doctor, physiotherapist or speech language pathologist, among other professions.
A workshop to build awareness and better equip health care professionals
The Health Care in French at a Glance workshop helps health care professionals understand the impact the quality of health care services in French has on the well-being of patients and provides them with tools to better serve patients in French. The workshop is offered free of charge online as well as in person.
