Nii Helen Belanger, Director of Wiichihiituwin (CPS). I am thankful for the chance to lead a dedicated group of employees at Wiichihiituwin. We deliver support services to the people of Eeyou Istchee who need health care outside the region. We arrange appointments, travel, food and lodging for our clients. We do this in a professional and respectful way.

Our offices in Chisasibi, Chibougamau, Val-d’Or and Montreal work together to help you to navigate the medical system outside of Eeyou Istchee. 

We are working hard to support you the best way we can.
