Heart of the Great Lakes

Do you enjoy professional sports?

Sault Ste. Marie and the Algoma region is situated at the heart of the great lakes and within a day’s drive of professional sports in Toronto, Detroit and Green Bay.

"Two words that come to mind when I think of Sault Ste. Marie (affectionately called, "The Soo") are: community and food. Soo residents are truly the heart of this city and their love language is food. I am still overflowing with gratitude for the warm welcome I received from the team at Algoma Public Health (APH). Relocating for work, while an exciting prospect, can also be an anxiety-riddled experience. However, the people of APH, especially my team, have made it such a smooth transition. As corny as it may sound, coming to work truly feels like coming home to family – and how fitting for a place that we spend most of our time in! Everyone is equipped with a good recommendation for the best spots to socialize, explore the scenic waterside sites, and most of all, FOOD. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside such incredible people who are passionate about their work and their community."

“Home is where the heart is.

Public health is my home. Prince Township is my home. Family gathered around a table on my grandparents’ farm is home.

 I waited patiently for an opportunity to return home to serve the community I grew up in and raise my family on the fields of my childhood. To find myself working for population health, building a dream home on the land of my ancestors, surrounded daily by the love and support of family, is the stuff of my imagination come true.

 The people and work of Algoma Public Health are home, and I am so grateful to work alongside such a dedicated team.”
