Welcome to Island Health

On August 1 st, we launched our new public website:

wwww.islandhealth.ca

and a new website for medical staff:

medicalstaff.islandhealth.ca

Our website was developed in partnership with patients and residents of Vancouver Island and the surrounding regions. It's accessible, mobile friendly and flexible to help us evolve with our communities as we work towards excellent health and care for everyone, everywhere, every time.

Come visit the new sites and update your bookmarks. This www.viha.ca site will continue to be available for one month so that our staff and partners have time to update their links to the new site. You can still browse the old site but it will no longer be updated.

Vancouver Island Children's Assessment Network

The Vancouver Island Children’s Assessment Network (VICAN) provides assessment services for children on Vancouver Island with complex developmental needs:

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) for all children up to age six, and for children over six when such services are not provided by the local school district. 

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) in at-risk children showing significant behavioural and developmental difficulties.

Greater Victoria up to Duncan community generally has assessments completed at the Queen Alexandra Centre in Victoria.

Nanaimo CDC provides assessments to centre island. The outreach team travels to the Comox Valley and Port HArdy to complete clinics there.

Explore VICAN Resources for Families for information on a range of topics related to behavioural and developmental difficulties.
