French Language Health Services

​ Improving Access to French Language Health Services

Access to quality French-language health services directly impacts the health of Francophones. In Champlain, that means it affects nearly 20 percent of the population.

The LHIN works to fulfill this need as part of its vision “healthy people and healthy communities supported by a quality, accessible health system”, and its responsibilities under the French Language Services Act and the Local Health System Integration Act.

Since 2010, the LHIN has worked in close collaboration with the French Language Health Services Network of Eastern Ontario (Le Réseau), the French Language Health Planning Entity for the Champlain and South East LHINs. The goal is to ensure that health service planning reflects the needs and priorities of the Francophone population.

LHIN-Funded Agencies

Did you know that the LHIN funds two types of health provider organizations?

Health Service Providers: are suppliers of health programs and services that are offered in hospitals, community support service agencies, mental health and addiction service agencies, community health centres, and long-term care homes.

Legally speaking, “health service providers” are defined in Section 2 of the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006

Service Provider Organizations:

are often called contracted service providers. On behalf of the LHIN, these agencies deliver home-and-community care services to support people living as independently as possible in the community. These services may include nursing, personal care (including bathing, dressing, etc.), physiotherapy, occupational therapy and more. 

Service provider organizations must provide services in French. The availability of bilingual staff may vary depending on the needs.

Legally speaking, “service providers” are defined in Section 2 of the Home Care and Community Services Act, 1994
