Ministry Reports

Ontario's Health System Performance Report 2004

In September 2000, Canada's Prime Minister and Premiers made a commitment to produce regular public reports on the performance of our health systems. Each province and territory agreed to report on a number of common indicators or measures so that, over time, jurisdictions could compare their performance and learn from one another.

In 2002, Ontario released its first report on the performance of its health system. This is its second performance report.

The 2004 report focuses on the government's priorities for healthcare combined with the themes of the 2003 Accord on Health Care Renewal.

The report tells consumers how their health system is doing and demonstrates how the government is working toward making Ontarians healthier. It focuses on improvements in accessing the system, improvements in quality of care and efforts to promote health and wellness.

The Provincial Auditor of Ontario has performed specified audit procedures to verify the health indicators presented in the report.
