It is a requirement of the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006 that LHINs have a service accountability agreement in place with each health service provider that it funds. The current MSAAs will expire on March 31, 2019. In order to facilitate the development of the next MSAA, which will come into effect on April 1, 2019, each LHIN-funded community Health Service Provider will be required to submit to the LHIN a planning document known as CAPS (Community Accountability Planning Submission). The CAPS, together with the MSAA, form the basis of a planning, funding and performance management framework. Each MSAA establishes the funding and service relationship between the North East LHIN and Community Health Centres (CHCs), Community Mental Health and Addictions (CMH&A) providers, and Community Support Service (CSS) agencies.
