Integration Resources

LHIN Guide to Good Governance

In 2009, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care released the LHIN Guide to Good Governance for use by all LHIN Board members and stakeholders.

LHIN-Health Service Provider Governance Resource and Toolkit for Voluntary Integration Initiatives

A key component of our LHIN's health system transformation activities is the integration of health care delivery.

In 2008, in concert with four other LHINs, Central LHIN released the LHIN-Health Service Provider Governance Resource and Toolkit for Voluntary Integration Initiatives. This toolkit supports health service provider boards in developing strategies to work with one another and the LHIN on voluntary integration initiatives.
