We want to know what you think about our health care system and work with you to make it even better.
For over 12 years, members of the public, patients, and family members have been involved in sharing their experiences, opinions, and ideas about health care services and overall strategies. We have we’ve been working with citizens and communities at the neighbourhood level, identifying and working on issues to improve the health of their communities.
Engagement refers to actively seeking out the insights and advice of our most important stakeholders - community members, patients, residents, clients, and their families. We continue to learn and improve how we deliver care because of the involvement and commitment of so many engagement volunteers over the years. Engagement also includes community development, where community members identify issues that are important to them and work collaboratively to address issues and develop programs in their own neighbourhoods.
There are many ways to get involved and become an engagement volunteer with us. We are looking for new volunteers for many of our advisory groups.
