Local Health System Integration Act, 2006
The Ontario government has changed the way health care services are planned, funded and managed through Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs). LHINs get their authority to manage their local health systems through the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006
The legislation places significant decision-making power at the community level and focuses the local health system on the community's needs.
April 1, 2008 marked the first full year of the LHINs authority in both funding a wide range of health service providers as well as managing the majority of service agreements with them.
The government continues to provide stewardship of Ontario's health system, setting direction, strategic policy and system standards and delivering provincial programs and services.
