North East LHIN’s health system planning and funding functions are now part of Ontario Health, a government agency responsible for ensuring Ontarians continue to receive high-quality health care services where and when they need them.
The North East LHIN is one of 14 Local Health Integration Networks that have been established by the Government of Ontario as community-based organizations to plan, integrate and fund health care services at the local level including hospitals, long-term care homes, community care access centres, community support services, community mental health and addictions services and community health centres.
The North East LHIN covers a vast geography – more than 400,000 square kilometres and 20% of the region is not accessible by road for much of the year, making ice roads or air the only way to reach people who live in the most Northerly part of our LHIN. More than 565,000 people call Northeastern Ontario home. Our region is culturally diverse with nearly 23% of our people Francophone and 13% Aboriginal, First Nation and/or Métis.
The North East LHIN is committed to being open and transparent with its stakeholders and the general public. Further to the LHIN's commitment is our compliance with the Public Sector Expenses Review Act, 2009. This act was implemented on November 30, 2009 and was created to strengthen and reinforce accountability, transparency and oversight of government expense claims. As per direction received from the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, the NE LHIN has created this page which details the expense reports of Board Members and Senior Staff as they engage with our stakeholders in managing the local health care system. All expenses are in accordance with the government's Travel, Meal & Hospitality Expenses Directives.
