Background
LOCAL HEALTH SYSTEM INTEGRATION ACT, S.O. 2006, C. 4, PART II, S. 3
Function

On April 1, 2021, the health system planning and funding functions of the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) transferred into Ontario Health. LHINs are now operating under a new business name, Home and Community Care Support Services, to reflect a focused service delivery mandate of providing home care and long-term care home placement services and facilitation of access to community services.

The objects of the LHINs, operating as Home and Community Care Support Services, include:

• to ensure the effective and efficient management of the human, material and financial resources of the network and to account to the Minister for the use of the resources;

• to provide health and related social services and supplies and equipment for the care of persons in home, community, and other settings, and to provide goods and services to assist caregivers in the provision of care for such persons;

• to manage the placement of persons into long-term care homes, supportive housing programs, chronic care and rehabilitation beds in hospitals, and other programs and places where community services are provided under the Home Care and Community Services Act, 1994;

•  to provide information to the public about, and make referrals to, health and social services.

There are 14 LHINs, operating as Home and Community Care Support Services across the province, that collectively deliver over 100,000 patient visits every day.  The 14 organizations are:
