Back to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Summary page

This vote includes Provincial Programs, Emergency Health Services and Stewardship. The vote is responsible for transfer payment accountability, operational policy development, planning and funding of a wide span of specialized programs. Examples of these transfer payment programs include: Cancer Care Ontario, Community and Priority Services, Operation of Related Facilities, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C Programs and Chronic Disease Management Programs. In addition, the program provides Ontario’s share of funding to the Canadian Blood Services and also supports a blood utilization management strategy for Ontario.

In addition to transfer payment activities, Provincial Programs and Stewardship also includes Direct Operating Expenditures (DOE) for the management and delivery of the Transfer payments within the Vote, and for the oversight administration (stewardship) of the Local Health Integration Networks.

Emergency Health Services ensures the existence of a balanced and integrated system of emergency health services throughout Ontario. The current system consists of a series of inter-related programs and services including municipally operated/contracted land ambulance services, the not-for-profit air ambulance organization called ORNGE, and ambulance communications services.
