Patient and Family Advisory Council

Other volunteer opportunities

Many health care organizations across the province are currently seeking to expand patient engagement efforts in their work. Individuals are encouraged to reach out to their Local Health Integration Networks
or community providers to see how they can get involved.

Local Health Integration Networks (LHIN)

The LHINs plan, integrate and fund local health care, improving access and patient experience. With the recent passing of the Patients First Act, 2016, each LHIN is now required to establish at least one Patient and Family Advisory committee. You can learn more about getting involved by identifying the Local Health Integration Network in your geographic area and contacting your local LHIN directly.

Volunteering with other organizations

Many hospitals, family health teams, community health centres, and other health care provider organizations have patient and family advisory bodies. Your LHIN can provide you with contact information for organizations in your community.
