The Health Communication Unit--Transfer of Funding to the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion

We are pleased to inform you that as of April 1, 2010, the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion (OAHPP) will be taking over responsibility for the contract management of The Health Communication Unit, as funded by the Ministry of Health Promotion (MHP). For more information, please read the joint MHP/OAHPP announcement at

The transfer and transformation of key centres is designed to align with OAHPP mandate while ensuring partner Ministry priorities (including those specified within the Health Protection and Promotion Act, the Ontario Public Health Standards, Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy renewal and other emerging strategies) are met.

Our work is closely aligned with OAHPP’s mandate and we look forward to working in close partnership as we all strive to strengthen health promotion and chronic disease and injury prevention in Ontario.
