The Ontario government adopted in 2010 the Francophone Community Engagement Regulation under the Local Health Integration Networks Act, which led to the establishment of 6 French language health planning entities (1 in Northern Ontario, 1 in Eastern Ontario and 4 in Southern Ontario) in order to provide advice and input on French language health services in their communities.
“This is truly important news for Francophones across the province. Essentially the six planning entities will give French-speaking Ontarians — for the first time — a direct say in the decisions that are being made to improve the quality of their health care.”
