Local Health System Integration Act, 2006

General Regulation Under the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006

On March 28, 2006, the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006 (LHSIA) received Royal Assent. In fulfilling their mandates, the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are responsible for local health system planning and community engagement. As of April 1, 2007, the LHINs have also assumed responsibility for funding a wide range of health service providers and for managing the majority of service agreements with health service providers.

A regulation has been approved to amend the Health Professionals Advisory Committee Regulation (Ontario Regulation 264/07) under LHSIA to add provisions enabling LHINs to reconcile and recover funding that LHINs provide to long-term care (LTC) home operators.

Minor technical amendments will also be made to Ontario Regulation 264/07 that are necessary to rename the regulation the General Regulation and to ensure consistent cross references to LTC homes once the Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007 (LTCHA) comes into force on July 1, 2010. The regulation amending Ontario Regulation 264/07 under LHSIA will come into force on July 1, 2010, the day section 1 of the LTCHA comes into force.

For a 60 day period, as required by LHSIA, beginning on September 5, 2009 , the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care invited written comments on the proposed draft regulation under LHSIA.

The proposed draft regulation under LHSIA was published in The Ontario Gazette and on the Regulatory Registry for 60 days and was posted on the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's website for public review and the opportunity to provide feedback. All written comments and submissions received during the comment period were considered during preparation of the final regulation.

The completed text of the Regulation amending O. Reg. 264/07 under LHSIA is now available in English and French on the e-Laws website and will be posted on the Regulatory Registry and published shortly thereafter in the Ontario Gazette.
