Mission, Goal & Objectives

mission

Health City Ontario derives from a belief in the principles of the Canada Health Act and the power and value of grass roots consultation in our universally accessible, publicly funded healthcare system. Our priority is to engage the public and care providers in order to effect change in the interest of acquiring timely, consistent and reliable access to healthcare for Ontario citizens.Dr. Joy Hataley
