The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) continues to work on plans to move the work of Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) to the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs).
The provincial government plans to introduce legislation to govern the transition before the legislature adjourns for the summer on June 9, 2016. The legislation will likely be debated and passed when MPPs return to Queen’s Park in the fall.
The OPSEU sector executive for community health care professionals is continuing to represent OPSEU members as the transition unfolds. The Ministry is interested in labour’s input to facilitate a smooth transition for all parties involved, and we are providing that input. All unions representing workers in the CCACs met with Tim Hadwen, the Associate Deputy Minister in the MOHLTC who is handling this file, on February 24 and April 11. While no more meetings are currently planned, we will continue to press the government and ministry officials for information and keep making sure OPSEU members have a voice in this transition.
We will share more information as it becomes available.
