CorHealth Ontario’s Advisory and Task Group Structure

CorHealth Ontario draws on the strength of our stakeholders’ expertise on projects and programs that help us fulfill our mandate. Through initiative-specific Task Groups and Committees, we are able to have our work be guided by expert clinicians, healthcare planners and thought leaders.

In 2018, CorHealth Ontario redesigned its Advisory and Task Groups to create a more effective and efficient model to identify provincial priorities. With deep stakeholder input and guidance, CorHealth Ontario redesigned the structure to ensure we draw on our network’s expertise in a standardized manner across our three clinical domains.

Advisory Committees, Task Groups & Working Groups
