Local Health System Integration Act, 2006

Notice of Proposed Draft Regulation Under the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006

On March 28, 2006, the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006 (LHSIA) received Royal Assent. In fulfilling their mandates, the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are responsible for local health system planning and community engagement. As of April 1, 2007, the LHINs have also assumed responsibility for funding a wide range of health service providers and for managing the majority of service agreements with health service providers.

The proposed draft regulation posted here deals with the reconciliation and recovery of funding provided to long-term care home operators.

Beginning on September 5, 2009 and for a 60 day period, as required by LHSIA, until November 3, 2009, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care is inviting written comments on this proposed draft regulation under LHSIA. The proposed draft regulation under LHSIA will be published in The Ontario Gazette and on the Regulatory Registry for 60 days and will be posted on the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's website for public review and the opportunity to provide feedback. All written comments and submissions received during the comment period will be considered during final preparation of the draft regulation. The content, structure and form of the draft regulation are subject to change as a result of the comment process, at the discretion of the Lieutenant Governor in Council (LGIC), who has the final decision on the content of any regulation. Once the final regulation is filed with the Registrar of Regulations and published in The Ontario Gazette, it will come into force on the date set out in the regulation.

The text and a description of the proposed draft regulation are available in English and French. These materials are available for download in PDF format below and are also available for review on the Regulatory Registry's website at www.ontariocanada.com/registry/ and in The Ontario Gazette at http://www.ontariogazette.gov.on.ca/.
