Created according to the Local Health System Integration Act 2006 and the Ontario Regulation 515 on the Engagement with the Francophone community, the six Ontario planning entities have been mandated to advise and make recommendations to the 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) on issues related to health services, needs and priorities for Francophone communities in Ontario.


Created in March 2006 by the Ontario Government, Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are non-profit-making organizations which, in collaboration with local health care providers and members of the community, define health care priorities in their area. There are 14 local entities tasked with planning, integrating and financing local health care services.
