Community Engagements

April 1, 2021 Update

Health system planning and funding functions of the Central LHIN are now part of Ontario Health, a government agency responsible for ensuring Ontarians continue to receive high-quality health care services where and when they need them.

The following information is provided for archived purposes.


We engage with many stakeholders, including patients, families, caregivers, health service providers, primary care providers, community service agencies and leaders, public health units and provincial partners.

The following provides information on various engagements and networks in support of health services and system planning in our local communities:

  • Central LHIN Patient and Family Advisory Committee – 16-member panel representing a broad spectrum of health system experiences and Central LHIN geography
  • Central LHIN Sub-Region Collaborative Tables – Includes over 80 clinical, health system and community service leaders working across six tables to define and implement opportunities to improve access, continuity in care and patient experience in each of the Central LHIN’s six sub-regions.
