Want to change Ontario's healthcare system?

You're in the right place.

We're creating an improved, integrated and sustainable healthcare system in Ontario that's co-designed with patients, caregivers and providers.

Our Work

Together, we're driving positive change in Ontario's healthcare system. Here are some of the things we're working on.

Future Innovator Awards

We honoured people, organizations and teams in Ontario that focused on partnering with patients and caregivers to improve the healthcare experience.

Integrated care

Together with our partners, we created the first virtual collaborative on Integrated Care for North America, allowing us to share with, and learn from, each other.

Primary care

The Primary Care Virtual Community brings together leaders in primary care who are interested in supporting meaningful change in Ontario’s healthcare system.

Changing CARE

Changing CARE is the action phase of our caregiver-focused strategic plan. It involved four partnerships from across Ontario.
