Palliative and End-Of-Life Care

Ontario is working to provide patients with more choices for palliative and end-of-life care.

This includes investing in more hospice and palliative care across the province and expanding caregiver supports that help families and loved ones support palliative patients at home and in their communities. Ontario also continues to support education about advanced care planning so that patients' wishes for end-of-life care are understood. The Ontario Palliative Care Network is funded by the ministry to provide a coordinated, patient-centred approach for hospice palliative care across the province.

With the passage of the Compassionate Care Act and consultation underway on a provincial framework, Ontario is continuing to increase access to palliative care and ensure that patients receive the care, dignity and respect they deserve in every stage of their life.
