A Few Words

About Us

For more than 25 years, The Core has been addressing health inequities such as poverty, racism, discrimination, unemployment & homelessness, faced by community members, neighbours, friends and families in Hamilton’s city core.

The Core provides primary healthcare, community health & harm reduction services.

We believe that:

  • All people have a right to be treated with dignity & respect.
  • Primary healthcare and services must be accessible, available and appropriate, and be directed toward addressing the specific issues of people who experience barriers to access.
  • All forms of oppression, including racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, ageism, classism, and economic oppression impact the health and well-being of individuals and communities. 
  • People essentially have an understanding of their own health and health needs, and have the right to make an informed choice.
  • Focusing on the most disadvantaged will benefit everyone in the community and society.
