As part of a community effort in Argyle, and in collaboration with the Argyle Community Association, a brand is being created for the Argyle community. Based on feedback from Argyle residents, the brand that is being created is called:

"Discover Argyle, A Great Place to Grow".

With the hard work of the Communications Committee of the Argyle Community Association, a website and Facebook page have also been developed with the Discover Argyle brand as the central focus. The website and Facebook page are designed to be an interactive space where people or organizations in Argyle can regularly post information about any initiatives, upcoming events or promotions. We believe that having a newsletter, website, FB page and Twitter account, all under the 'Discover Argyle' brand, where all of the different community organizations in Argyle can post or share information will provide the neighbourhood with a "one stop shop" approach to reaching residents. With these various formats of communication, news and information will travel better than ever before in Argyle! Do you want to learn more about how you or your organization could benefit from becoming a collaborator on the website, FB page or submitting content to the newsletter?

Health Clinic Closing in Argyle!

In March 2014 the AIM Medical Clinic which is at the corner of Dundas St. and Saskatoon St. will be closing. For several years the AIM Medical Clinic has provided a medical walk in clinic in addition to the regular clinic for their patients. The patients who have doctors there will still have doctors however will have to go to other areas of the city.

We will now have only one walk in clinic, at Trafalgar and Clarke which I believe has limited hours.

The Medical Clinic at Wavell and Saskatoon has downsized as well. Dr. Chris Bruckschwaiger retired and Dr. Dieter Bruckschwaiger has moved to Springbank Drive. The bus service to get to Springbank is not great.

In my opinion this is a huge loss to the Argyle community. We have many seniors who do not drive and we also have a large number of lower income people with young families who have relied on this clinic. The clinic itself was in such a convenient location next to Shoppers Drugmart , a Chiropractor, a Physiotherapist and an x-ray facility.

I encourage you to write to Deb Matthews who is the Minister of Health and Long Term Care and also send it to Teresa Armstrong, our MPP, as well as to the two critics for Health and Long Term Care. We will have very little medical care within the Argyle community and with the long wait times at Emergency Rooms walk in clinics are vital within communities.
