Health Unit Corporate Identity

The Health Unit logo is a trademark owned by The Corporation of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit. It is not to be used without written permission from this agency. Contact [email protected] for any questions.

The logo may be modified by the agency to observe certain local, national or international days for a period of time to demonstrate the Health Unit’s commitment to equity, inclusion and justice for all community members. You may notice our logo changing on our social media platforms on specific days, weeks or months.

June – Pride Month (Logo will be changed on social media from May 31 through to July 2)

  • The Health Unit has changed our logo for the month of June to support pride events that celebrate the progress that has been made towards 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion and the protection of human rights. Stigma directed towards persons of 2SLBGTQIA+ identities creates an environment where their personal health outcomes are at risk based on limited access to services, education, employment, housing and social inclusion. These health inequities have the potential to be changed by reducing stigma through social engagement.

May 5 – Red Dress Day (Logo will be changed on social media from May 3 through to May 6)

  • Red Dress Day honours the memories of missing and murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit People. For May 5, we have adapted our logo to bring awareness to the ongoing race and gender based violence across Canada.

September 30 – Orange Shirt Day (Logo will be changed on social media from September 29 through to October 3)

  • On Orange Shirt Day we acknowledge and reflect on the intergenerational impacts of residential schools experienced by Indigenous Peoples across the county. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit have begun their journey toward Truth and Reconciliation with staff education on the history of colonization, and the health inequities that continue to affect Indigenous Peoples today.
