This preliminary study, through a literature review, focus groups and key informant interviews, examines the impact of social policy on the health status of older immigrant women and the health and social service seeking patterns of older immigrant women. It focuses on a specific community of older immigrant women in Toronto, Ontario and/or a specific health and social service need/issue relevant to this community, as identified in consultation with its Community Health Centre (CHC) partners and their patient communities. It also explores the role of CHC in addressing the health and social service needs of these women; and identify where service needs/pathways and the CHC service delivery system may overlap, with a view to further research and application to service models. The report is now available online.
