Our history

The Multicultural Clinic was created in 1996 to meet the needs of children newly arrived to Canada. It was noted that children new to Canada often had different needs to children who were born here, and families with cultural, linguistic and religious differences needed respect and understanding.

In some cases, children are suffering from diseases rarely seen in Canada. Some children seen in the clinic come from war zones where they lived in refugee camps. They and their families may have mental health issues because of their experiences. 

Our team

The Multicultural Clinic staff includes five pediatricians and a Pediatric Fellow. The clinic’s pediatricians also supervise medical residents and students doing their pediatric clinical rotation (part of their medical school training) who see patients in the clinic.

Where the care happens

Patients are seen in the Multicultural Clinic on A-2-South at the Montreal Children's Hospital at the Glen site.

Programs and services

The clinic sees children who are refugees, immigrants or have been adopted internationally, who have come to Canada within the past 12 to 18 months. Every child undergoes a complete physical exam. If needed, the clinic staff may also call on specialist physicians, social workers and other professionals to treat the child. Screening for anemia, parasites and infectious diseases is also offered since many of the children coming to the clinic are considered at high risk for these conditions.
