Volunteers for Ontario’s Patient and Family Advisory Council Needed

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) is inviting patients, families, and caregivers to apply to be a member of the new provincial Patient and Family Advisory Council. No experience is necessary — you simply need to be 18 years of age or older and live in Ontario.

Over the course of 18 months, the Council will advise on:

  • Changes in how care is delivered
  • New initiatives being planned by the Ministry
  • How the Ministry can better engage with members of the public.

The aim is to involve patients, families, and caregivers in the policy development process, ensure their needs and concerns are understood, and help the health system become more responsive, transparent and accountable.

Fifteen members will be chosen through an open public process and will represent Ontarians from across the province. There is no cost to be a member of the Council — meals, travel, and accommodation when needed, will be paid for.

The deadline to apply is April 10, 2017.
