Tell us how we're doing!
While working to provide the best possible care, we also want to provide the best possible service. We want to know how we are doing and welcome feedback of all kinds — compliments, concerns, complaints, and all other inquiries.
Our programs and services are accessible to everyone in the Mississauga Halton community. Compliments, suggestions and complaints from our patients and their families are important to help us continually improve our programs and services.
To provide any type of feedback, please contact your Care Coordinator directly.
If you have a specific complaint about your care and the service we are providing, please follow the steps below to ensure a prompt response. We strive to resolve patient complaints informally, whenever possible.
- Contact your Care Coordinator to discuss your complaint. Your Care Coordinator is familiar with your situation and wants to hear what is going well for you and what can be improved. Your Care Coordinator will work with you, your family, or your caregiver to respond to your complaint. Most patient complaints are successfully resolved at this level.
- If, after speaking with your Care Coordinator, your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, you can ask to speak to his or her manager.
- If, after speaking with a manager, your complaint remains unresolved, you may request a formal review by the Ombudsperson. All patients have the right to a fair and unbiased review of any unresolved complaints or disputes regarding the quality and level of our services. The Ombudsperson will review your concerns and seek to achieve a mutally satisfactory win-win solution to your complaint. The Ombudsperson may also bring forward recommendations.
To request a formal review, contact the Mississauga Halton LHIN Ombudsperson at:

Following the Mississauga Halton LHIN formal review process, if you remain unsatisfied with the decision, you have the right to appeal that decision to the Health Services Appeal and Review Board (HSARB), if it concerns your eligibility for service, the type or amount of service you receive, or why services were discontinued.

Long-Term Care Action Line
In addition to the Mississauga Halton LHIN's internal process for dealing with patient concerns and complaints, you also have the option of contacting the Long-Term Care Action Line, a service provided by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Originally established for residents of long-term care homes with concerns about care, the Long-Term Care Action line was expanded in 2007 so that our patients and caregivers could raise concerns or complaints about home and community care services.
If you contact the Long-Term Care Action Line, an Independent Complaints Facilitator (ICF) will be assigned to help you address your concern or complaint with the Mississauga Halton LHIN. The Long-Term Care Action Line may be contacted by telephone at
1-866-876-7658, or online at: www.health.gov.on.ca
