Persons selected for the Board would be required to clear any conflicts prior to accepting membership on the LHIN Board.
Following confirmation of their appointment, individual Board members will be required to meet with the Conflict of Interest Commissioner.
Directors are appointed by Order-in-Council for a term of up to three (3) years, subject to renewal.
LHIN Review of Applications
The Public Appointments Unit (PAU) of the Public Appointments Secretariat undertakes a screening process and forwards the applications of skill-matched candidates to the LHIN Board Chair for consideration.
Together with the LHIN Board Chair, the Central LHIN Community Nominations Committee reviews the applications and selects candidates for interviews. Following the interview process, the Community Nominations Committee makes a recommendation through the Board Chair to the Central LHIN Board of Directors for approval.
The LHIN Board Chair then sends a letter to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, confirming three recommended candidates with a summary for each candidate as approved by the Central LHIN Board of Directors.
The PAU asks potential candidates to complete a Personal and Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement, conducts a basic interview of LHIN recommended candidate and provides comments to the Minister’s Office.
The Minister determines preferred candidate. Once that is finalized, a Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) check is conducted and the Minister recommends the candidate to Cabinet, which reviews and approves the appointment.
The Standing Committee on Government Agencies reviews proposed new appointments with terms of more than one year. Proposed appointee may be requested to appear before the Committee to discuss their qualifications. When their review process is complete, the Standing Committee releases the Order-in-Council to the Lieutenant Governor General for signature. Once signed, an Order in Council becomes approved and ordered.
The Public Appointments Secretariat forwards a signed copy of Order-in-Council to the LHIN Board Chair.
Notification of Successful Candidate
Upon receipt, the LHIN Board Chair notifies the successful candidate, and the Minister sends a congratulatory letter and a copy of the Order-in-Council to the new appointee.
