The Ministry of Health (the "Ministry") would like to update you about changes being made to support COVID-19 containment efforts.

The Ontario Public Service (OPS) is implementing changes to support social distancing by enabling employees to work remotely, wherever feasible.  In order to ensure minimal disruption to application-based funding programs, the Ministry is implementing the following changes effective immediately:

  • Temporary suspension of mailed/couriered applications for identified programs
  • Only applications that are sent by email to the designated ministry account will be accepted
  • Applications that include electronic signatures (i.e. scanned original, electronic device applications, or digital) will be accepted in lieu of original, signed documents

Please refer to the table below for programs impacted by this change and rerouting email addresses.
