AFHTO Policy Positions

AFHTO’s submission to Drummond Commission on Broader Public Sector Reform

AFHTO was invited to present to the Commission on Broader Public Sector Reform, chaired by economist Don Drummond and announced in the 2011 Ontario Budget speech last spring.  The Commission is to report in early 2012, in time to inform development of Government’s 2012-13 Budget, on its mandate to examine long-term, fundamental changes to the way government works including:

  • Programs that are no longer serving their intended purpose and could be eliminated or redesigned;
  • Areas of overlap and duplication that could be eliminated to save taxpayer dollars; and
  • Areas of value in the public sector that could provide a greater return on the investment made by taxpayers.

AFHTO prepared a formal submission to provide the basis for discussion.  Last week the AFHTO board of directors formally adopted this paper as policy direction for AFHTO’s advocacy work.

AFHTO’s advocacy work with and on and behalf of members continues.  In addition to the Drummond Commission, recent meetings have included the OMA Negotiations Committee, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care’s Office, MOHLTC’s FHT Unit, NPAR Advisory Committee and others.  We look forward to continuing to keep you informed.
