Somerset West Community Health Centre (SWCHC) is a non-profit, community-governed organization. We were established in 1978 and are located in the heart of Chinatown.

We support people and communities to enjoy the best possible health and well-being by providing health and social services.

We do this by removing barriers to accessing services for people who are vulnerable because of their age, income, ability, sexual orientation or gender identity, and language or culture.

We work alongside community members to make our neighbourhood and our city an even better place to live.

Harm Reduction Worker in Ottawa, ON
on 1 March 2022
Draining. Exhausting. High burnout

Only stayed so long for the somewhat decent pay that was livable. Very high rate of burnout, poor management and leadership. Will reprimand for anything not by the book, but will not reward for extras or doing more than necessary. Took a toll on me physically and mentally and mental health declined and no one cared or bothered. Many good coworkers left before myself. Always short staffed. Free for all no rules for clients, Violent clients still accepted. Gaslighting and micro managing managers still having their positions. Staff assaulted or harassed and managers ignore it. It isnt worth the work. Wish i knew.

Exciting, friendly, cultural

I loved working with the different kinds of cultural backgrounds of the all the people living in the area. I loved how they have available free resources for helping the community.

Amazing colleagues, gaslighting management

SW fosters an environment where they put the needs of clients above staff needs. Lack of boundaries, and lack of care for your personal safety and mental well-being

Like a giant extended family

look forward to working with my coworkers/ partners everyday! Just a great place to work while doing a difficult job! You'll feel supported & appreciated! But definitely a difficult job at times.

Good money, not worth the stressful work environment

I have experienced lots of childcare centre but this one was by far the most stressful one I have worked at. Great diversity within the community though. Mico managed by staff I couldn't give my own ideas and they were bever considered. The staff there were always stressed which caused me to stress as well. I was very unhappy working there. My mental health working there was not taken seriously which caused me to crash. (Early Childhood Educator)
