The Ontario government has launched a public consultation on its
10-year strategic plan for health care. People are invited to submit
their ideas online, by phone or by fax.
The consultation is part of the development of a strategic plan, which
is a commitment legislated under the Local Health System Integration
Act, 2006. The strategic plan, which will be released in the spring of
2007, will provide direction for future health system policy, planning,
investment, and the operation of government and government agencies.
The plan will set out 3-, 5- and 10-year goals for the health care
system, as well as performance expectations.
