In 2019, Victoria Freeman (MSW, RSW) founded the Wellness Collective Network and launched the flagship location, York Wellness, in Newmarket, Ontario. Her vision was to create a space where health care professionals could develop community, access flexible office space, and grow their thriving private practices. The collective quickly became a vibrant network of colleagues and it was clear from feedback that the model was exactly what clinicians needed. They were breaking through the isolation of private practice and accelerating their success through referrals, peer support and networking opportunities.
In 2023, the network welcomed Nicole Schroeder (MSW, RSW) and Andrew Ross (MSW, RSW) as managing partners. As a new team of three, they launched the Toronto Wellness Collective; a brick and beam space with 5 offices and a group room in the heart of downtown Toronto.
