Who we are:
The Waterloo Wellington Self-Management Program (WWSMP) is hosted by Langs. The role of the WWSMP is to coordinate self-management programs that support individuals and their caregivers in the region living with or at risk of developing chronic diseases. The role also includes providing self-management support training, education and mentoring to healthcare providers.
There are 14 self-management(SM) programs across Ontario, each aligned with their respective Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). For contact information on other SM programs in Ontario, click here
Self-management is defined as the active, engaged participation of individuals in achieving their best health and wellness. This involves gaining the confidence, knowledge and skills to manage physical, social and emotional aspects of life in partnership with healthcare providers and community supports.
Self-management support is the range of organizational, community and healthcare provider strategies to elicit and support the active participation of individuals in achieving their best health and wellness.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada published a report in 2015 with 94 calls to action. These actions are broken down into action areas, such as Health, Education, Youth Programs, Professional Development Trainings, Justice and more. Recommendations made are an important blueprint for Canadian reconciliation, and specific calls to action pertain to much of the work that Langs does.
We acknowledge that it is a form of respect, wherever we live, to find out whose traditional territory we are on because every part of what is now known as Canada is someone’s Indigenous traditional territory. We acknowledge that Langs is on the Haldimand Tract, traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabe, and Haudenosaunee Peoples. We have much to learn from the First Peoples of this land who can assist in the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental well-being of people and the work that we do in supporting them. We are grateful for the historic and ongoing care for the land by the Indigenous Peoples of this area.
