Local Health Integration Networks (LHIN's)
LHINs get their authority to manage their local health systems through the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006

LHINs are a critical part of the evolution of health care in Ontario, making it a system that is patient-focused, results-driven, integrated and sustainable. LHINs possess significant decision-making power at the community level which focuses on local community needs, and improving health results for patients in every part of the province. LHINs facilitate effective and efficient integration of health care services, making it easier for people to get the best care in the most appropriate setting, when they need it.

LHINs are also responsible for funding a wide range of health service providers and for managing the majority of service agreements with these providers. The government’s role is to provide stewardship of Ontario’s health system, setting direction, strategic policy and system standards and delivering provincial programs and services.

Together, all the system partners – government, LHINs and providers – are accountable to the people of Ontario for health care quality and results.

Minister's Advisory Group on Mental Health and Addictions - Progress Report on the 10-Year Strategy
This Advisory Group will help lay the foundation for a 10-year Strategy on mental health and addictions needs and priorities.

Ontarians from all backgrounds and walks of life are part of this Advisory Group.
More specifically, they include consumers, family members, health care providers and researchers from across the province. The Advisory Group will reflect a range of perspectives, such as children and youth, aboriginal peoples, seniors, women and adults and in the workplace.

The new Strategy will address the factors that contribute to mental illness and addictions. It will focus on people with serious mental health issues, complex substance abuse and problem gambling issues.

While the Strategy will include the wider spectrum of mild and moderate mental illness and addictions, like depression, those living with serious mental illness and addictions will remain a priority.

The goal of the strategy is to ensure that every Ontarian achieves optimal health and well-being. And for those who need it, the system will ensure equitable access to respectful, effective services.
