AFHTO’s 2017 Pre-Budget Submission

AFHTO submitted its recommendations to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs as part of the 2017 Ontario Pre-Budget Consultations on Jan. 20, 2017. In this upcoming provincial budget, we call on the government to strengthen primary care so that it can deliver on its commitments outlined in the Patients First Act and ensure all Ontarians receive access to high quality, comprehensive, interprofessional team-based care.

Key recommendations include:

  • Continue on the path to stabilize the primary care workforce – invest in the people needed to lead successful change.
  • Broaden access to interprofessional team-based care teams – optimize the ability of professions to collaborate and create a culture of trust
  • Ensure seamless transition of care coordinators into primary care
  • Invest in meaningful and measurable measurement
