Ensuring Active Role For Francophones In Health Services

Ontario is adding four more French Language Health Planning Entities to work with Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) on health needs and priorities of the local francophone community.

LHINs will engage the French language health planning entities on francophone health issues to better develop:

The four new French Language Health Planning Entities are as follows:

  1. Entité de planification des services de santé en français Érié St. Clair/Sud-Ouest
  2. Entité de planification pour les services en français dans les régions de Waterloo, Wellington, Hamilton, Niagara
  3. Entité de planification pour les services de santé en français de Toronto Centre, Centre Ouest et Mississauga Halton
  4. Entité de planification pour les services de santé en français #4 Centre Sud-Ouest

French Language Health Planning Entities in Champlain/South East and Northern Ontario were established in June.

Francophone communities in Ontario date back to the 17th century, and approximately 600,000 francophones live in Ontario today, which represents the largest francophone population in Canada outside of Quebec.
