Welcome to Island Health

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


and a new website for medical staff:


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.


Speech-Language Program


The Speech-Language Program sees preschool-aged children who live in the Capital Region, and who require speech-language services.  Children needing services in addition to speech and language therapy, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological assessment, social work, and support for hearing impairment, are referred to other agenices within Island Healh where their speech and language therapy is provided in conjunction with other services.


We provide speech-language assessments and treatment at five regional public health units located in Victoria, Saanich, Esquimalt, West Shore and the Peninsula.  Families may choose to attend the health unit that is most convenient.

Accessing Services

  • We accept referrals from Public Health Nurses, audiologists, physicians, parents and other community professionals.
  • Telephone or written referrals should be directed to the health unit closest to, or most convenient for, the family.
