CHAI Health Advocates are professionals with extensive nursing, paramedicine, social work, or medical backgrounds. They have deep experience and expertise in the Canadian healthcare system, so they know and understand the intricate workings of the system. They know what questions to ask and whom to ask. As a result, they are uniquely positioned to help you or your loved ones navigate an often confusing system.

All our Canadian health advocates possess exceptional interpersonal skills. This enables them to liaise, on your behalf, between a wide array of medical professionals. It also means they can always provide you with a clear picture of what’s going on and why.

See Health Advocate Services to learn more about what CHAI’s patient advocates do and how they can help you.

My dedication has always been to clients and their families. Advocating for patient rights, promoting a patient’s independence, and supporting patients through difficult decisions has always been of utmost importance.
Blair Goodman
I have significant experience in many areas, including Home and Community care, Palliative care, Long Term Care and more recently as an Infection Control Practitioner. I have the knowledge to actively support and navigate my patients and families through our healthcare system to get the best possible outcome for them.
Missie McIntosh
Throughout my career and life, I have been advocating for the medical and emotional needs of my patients, family members, and friends. It has taught me that the process is so much better when you’re supported by someone with experience. I am honored to be your advocate and a source of support.
Michelle Reimer
From experience on a professional level and a personal level, I know how easy it is for someone ‘to fall through the cracks’ and/or not get the care they need. While working as your advocate, my purpose and goal is to help you and your loved ones navigate through the health care system, so you have more time and energy to focus on yourself and your loved ones.

My passion is to ensure that people get the care that they deserve so that they can focus on getting better. When I was an active Critical Care RN for both children and adults, I saw my first duty to be an advocate for my patients.
