Ontario Health – agency update

Some key points about the Legislation:

Minister Elliot: Healthcare is not going to be privatized.

Update about broken health system

Analysis of the legislation for the policy nerds by two law firms:

BLG: Canada: Ontario Government’s Healthcare Reform Legislation, Bill 74, The People’s Health Care Act, 2019

Article by Anne CorbettLydia Wakulowsky and Henry Ngan

Agency:The Agency will have a board of up to 15 directors and, like the LHINs, the directors, the Chair and the Vice Chair will be appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council (LGIC). The board will hire the CEO, who shall not be a director, and will set the remuneration of the CEO within the ranges established by the Minister.

There is no requirement for meetings of the Agency board to be open to the public.

Service Accountability Agreement: The Bill provides for a process of notice and negotiation of a SAA but reserves to the Agency the authority to eventually unilaterally impose the terms and conditions of the SAA.
