How Board Members are Selected
Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are each governed by an appointed Board of Directors, which consists of nine members, and are bound by performance agreements with the ministry. The people who sit on our boards were selected because of their relevant skills and experiences, and do not necessarily represent a specific stakeholder group or geographic area.
Board members are selected using a merit-based process, with all candidates assessed for fit between skills and abilities of the prospective appointee and the needs of each individual LHIN. The boards are appointed by an Order-in-Council. The appointment process is transparent and consistent - with clear and understandable guidelines applied consistently to all board appointments.
Board members are expected to possess relevant expertise, experience, leadership skills and have an understanding of local health issues, needs and priorities.
The ministry selected three board candidates for each of the 14 LHIN boards, consisting of a board chair and two directors.
LHIN Boards reached full complement of up to nine members by March 2006. Occasionally, there may be new appointments or upcoming vacancies in one of our boards. To check these, please click here to be redirected to Ontario's Public Appointments Secretariat.
