Fighting Invasive Species in Ontario

February 26, 2014

Province Proposing New Legislation to Take Action Against Invasive Species

Ontario is taking strong action to address the social, ecological and economic threats that invasive species pose to our natural environment.

The Invasive Species Act, to be introduced today, would support the prevention, early detection, rapid response and eradication of invasive species in the province.

If passed, the legislation would position Ontario as the first and only jurisdiction in Canada to introduce standalone invasive species legislation.

This legislation would:

  • Give Ontario the tools to ban activities such as possessing and transporting certain invasive species,
  • Allow the government to intervene earlier and enable rapid response actions, including working with partners to stop an invasive species from spreading – for example by preventing the movement of contaminated firewood,
  • Help ensure compliance through modernized inspection and enforcement measures.

Protecting the environment is part of the government’s plan to enhance the quality of life for Ontario families and ensure a dynamic economy for future generations. It is also part of the government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow by focusing on Ontario’s greatest strengths – its people and strategic partnerships.

QUICK FACTS

  • Globally, invasive species costs to the environment, agriculture and societies – including control costs – are estimated to be $1.4 trillion — the equivalent of five per cent of the global economy and seven times the cost of natural disasters.
  • The cost of managing invasive zebra mussels in Ontario alone is estimated at $75 to $91 million per year. This includes costs to municipalities, businesses, and power producers.
  • If introduced into Ontario’s aquatic ecosystems, Asian Carp would cause a significant negative impact to the province’s $2.2 billion recreational fishing industry.
  • You can do your part by reporting invasive species sightings to the Invading Species Hotline at: 1-800-563-7711 or by email at info@invadingspecies.com. You can also report online athttp://www.eddmaps.org/ontario/.

QUOTES

“Ontario is proud to introduce the Invasive Species Act which, if passed, would make Ontario a national leader in invasive species prevention and management.

— David Orazietti, Minister of Natural Resources
“Preventing invasive species from arriving and becoming established in Ontario is of utmost importance. I am pleased that the Ontario government will be proposing legislation today that would help us to accomplish this vital task.”
— Angelo Lombardo, Executive Director, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters
“The Invasive Species Centre is proud to work in partnership with Ontario, and many other important organizations, to combat invasive species in the province. The introduction of this proposed legislation would strengthen these partnerships and make our efforts to fight invasive species even more effective.”
— Dilhari Fernando, Executive Director, Invasive Species Centre

News Release

Greener Diesel, Cleaner Air

April 3, 2014

Ontario’s New Biodiesel Rules Will Help Fight Climate Change, Smog

Ontario’s new greener diesel rules are stepping up the fight against climate change and improving air quality by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and smog-causing pollutants in cars, trucks and boats.New rules, which went into effect April 1, are being phased in over three years. By 2017, the amount of biofuel blended into regular diesel will need to average at least four per cent. Greenhouse gases must be reduced by at least 30 per cent this year, and 70 per cent by 2017, for the biofuel portion of the new blend.

By 2017, Ontario’s greener diesel approach is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 600,000 tonnes a year — equivalent to taking 140,000 cars off the road.

Greener diesel will also encourage investment at fuel terminals in Ontario and help expand market opportunities for agricultural-based feedstocks.

Home heating oils and aviation fuel are exempt from the new requirements and northern Ontario will be exempt from the new rules until 2017.

Making sound, sustainable decisions about the environment that support the economy is part of the government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario’s greatest strengths — its people and strategic partnerships.

QUICK FACTS

  • Greener diesel is a blend of petroleum diesel and renewable biofuel made from feedstocks such as canola and soy oils, animal fats and recycled cooking oils.
  • Greener diesel can be used in cars, trucks, boats and other types of engines without modification.
  • The transportation sector is the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions in Ontario.
  • The government will monitor implementation of the requirements.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“Greener diesel will improve air quality, bring Ontario closer to meeting our greenhouse gas reduction targets, and help support a growing biofuel economy.”
— Jim Bradley, Minister of the Environment

“Using greener diesel is a step towards a clean, sustainable energy future — an important goal for everyone in the province. Growing crops for green energy initiatives, and the development of a robust bioeconomy, is an increasingly important part of the success of our agri-food industry.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Minister of Agriculture and Food

News Release

Ontario Continues to Beat Its Fiscal Targets

April 3, 2014

Government Taking a Responsible and Balanced Approach

Ontario’s new deficit for 2013-14 is estimated to be $11.3 billion — a $400 million improvement compared with the 2013 budget. This marks the fifth year in a row that the province is on track for a deficit lower than forecast.The province’s performance against its fiscal targets to date is the result of a responsible and balanced approach to fiscal management, and the government’s commitment to ensuring value for taxpayers’ money by making every dollar count.

With the economy around the world growing at a much slower pace, Ontario must continue to invest to help spur growth. The province will also continue to invest in important public services like health care and education, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

A measured and moderate approach to balancing the budget is part of the government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario’s greatest strengths – its people and strategic partnerships.

QUICK FACTS

  • In the 2013 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review, the government made its priority clear – that it will continue to protect investments in jobs, growth and families ahead of short-term targets.
  • Since 2003, the province has invested nearly $100 billion in public infrastructure to increase Ontarians’ quality of life and business productivity after decades of underinvestment by previous governments.
  • Ontario has the lowest per-capita program spending among provinces and the lowest total government revenue per person among all Canadian provinces, including funding from federal transfers.
  • The government continues to manage public sector compensation and benefits costs. It has introduced legislation to control compensation of senior executives in the broader public sector, and to continue to freeze the salaries of Members of Provincial Parliament until the budget is balanced.
  • Further details regarding 2013-14 fiscal performance will be provided in the upcoming 2014 budget.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“We continue to beat our fiscal targets in a way that is both fiscally responsible and fair, while protecting critical investments and public services for all Ontarians. Notwithstanding slower economic growth around the world, the Ontario government is determined to eliminate the deficit by 2017-18 in a balanced and responsible way.”
— Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance

Expanding Life-Saving Care for Stroke Victims

Expanding Life-Saving Care for Stroke Victims

February 4, 2014

Ontario Using Technology to Improve Patient Care and Value for Health Dollars

Stroke victims across Ontario can now benefit from life-saving, emergency care through eHealth Ontario’s Emergency Neuro Image Transfer System.Through a partnership between the Ontario Telemedicine Network and eHealth Ontario, the Emergency Neuro Image Transfer System — currently used for head trauma victims — is expanding to provide 24/7 access to expert care for stroke patients.

Doctors in acute care hospitals across the province, regardless of size or location, now have the capability to hold virtual consultations and get expert advice from the Ontario Telemedicine Network’s neuro-specialists. The system allows them to electronically share brain images, such as MRIs and CT scans, to determine the best course of treatment.

This enhancement will help doctors make faster diagnosis, such as determining whether a patient is a candidate for the clot-busting drug t-PA, which is effective if administered shortly after a stroke. It will also help physicians determine if patient transfers to specialized urban hospitals are necessary, which will help to get better value for health dollars.

Improving access to life-saving emergency care for stroke victims is part of Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care to provide the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This supports the government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • Ontario’s Emergency Neuro Image Transfer System has been used since 2009 for head trauma victims, and has already proven to help provide more accurate and faster patient care.
  • Sixteen thousand people will experience a stroke in Ontario each year, at a cost of nearly $1 billion to the economy in medical and indirect costs.
  • All 97 acute care hospitals in Ontario are live with the Emergency Neuro Image Transfer System.
  • Today, two out of three Ontarians are covered by an Electronic Health Record (EHR) and seven out of 10 family physicians use an EHRs in their practice.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“Early diagnosis and treatment for stroke victims is crucial. That’s why getting stroke patients faster access to neurologists through this system is a major milestone for improving patient care in Ontario. This is another example of how we are providing the right care, at the right time, in the right place.”
— Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“London Health Sciences Centre is pleased to have worked with Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) CritiCall Ontario, and eHealth Ontario, to expand ENITS to include stroke consultation. By connecting physicians through ENTIS, scans can now be reviewed remotely by neuro specialists and stroke patients will ultimately be provided with timely access to a neurologist consultation regardless of where they are physically located.”
— Murray Glendining, Acting President and CEO, London Health Sciences Centre
“At the Ontario Telemedicine Network, we are proud to work with our health system partners and health care providers to deliver faster and better access to critical care. Telestroke is a dramatic example of how providers can use telemedicine to improve outcomes and save lives.”
— Ed Brown, CEO Ontario Telemedicine Network
“This partnership provides immediate care in stroke intervention where timing is critical. Patients will no longer have to incur the stress or the province the expense of land or air ambulance travel. And with t-PA drug therapy patients can avoid costly rehabilitation.”
— Sime Pavlovic, V-P Clinical Data Management Services, eHealth Ontario

News Release

Ontario Increasing Minimum Wage

January 30, 2014

New Legislation Would Tie Minimum Wage to Consumer Price Index

Ontario is increasing the minimum wage from $10.25 to $11 per hour on June 1, 2014. This new rate reflects the rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) since the last minimum wage increase in 2010 and is part of the provincial government’s commitment to fairness.

The government will also introduce legislation that would tie future minimum wage increases to the CPI. This will ensure the minimum wage keeps up with the cost of living, and that increases are predictable for businesses and families. Under the proposed legislation, increases would be announced by April 1 and come into effect on Oct. 1.

The proposed legislation would act on the recommendations of Ontario’s Minimum Wage Advisory Panel, which included business, labour, youth and anti-poverty representatives.

Ensuring the minimum wage is fair and predictable for both workers and business is part of the Ontario government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • The 75 cent increase reflects the annual change in Ontario’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) since the last increase on March 31, 2010.
  • The province’s Minimum Wage Advisory Panel recommends that the province perform a full review of its minimum wage rates and revision process every five years.
  • The panel held 10 public consultations across the province and received more than 400 submissions from organizations, businesses, and individual Ontarians.
  • Increasing the minimum wage supports Ontario’s Poverty Reduction Strategy. In the first three years of the strategy, approximately 47,000 children and their families were lifted out of poverty.
  • The current minimum wage is $10.25 per hour. It has increased nearly 50 per cent since 2003.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“Increasing the minimum wage will help improve the standard of living for hardworking people across the province, while ensuring that businesses have the predictability necessary to plan for the future.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario
“Our government is focused on helping hardworking Ontarians by ensuring fairness for people living on minimum wage and predictability for business. By establishing a transparent, fair and responsible method of setting minimum wage in the future, we are taking the politics out of minimum wage. This will provide fairness for Ontario workers and their families and predictability and transparency for our businesses to remain competitive and succeed.”
— Yasir Naqvi, Minister of Labour

Helping Seniors Get the Care They Need at Home

January 29, 2014

Ontario Improving Access to Home and Community Care

Ontario is ensuring seniors have better access to home care and community supports so they can live independently and in their homes longer.

This year the government has provided a $260 million increase in supports to programs across the province that help more than 637,000 seniors and their families get the right care, in the right place, at the right time, while reducing unnecessary hospital visits and readmissions. This includes:

 

  • Expanding community adult day programs to include more evenings and weekends, including atProvidence Healthcare in Scarborough, to provide additional caregiver relief and meaningful activity for people with moderate to severe dementia.

 

 

  • Helping seniors with complex needs live independently in Toronto through personal support services and supportive housing provided by LOFT Community Services.
  • Expanding programs in Northeastern Ontario to safely discharge high-risk seniors from hospital acute care or ER, and get them back to their homes sooner.
  • Providing overnight respite for caregivers of seniors with dementia in the South West LHIN through Adult Day Programs, benefiting approximately 75 to 100 families in the region annually.

 

This investment means that 46,000 more seniors will benefit from home care, and home care wait times will be reduced for patients with complex needs who require nursing and personal support worker services.

Providing more home and community care to seniors helps deliver on our Action Plan for Health Careto provide the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This is part of the Ontario government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • Over the next 20 years, the population of seniors aged 65 and over in Ontario will more than double from 1.9 million today to 4.2 million in 2036.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“At the core of our health care transformation effort — and our Senior’s Strategy — is a shift from care in institutions like hospitals and long-term care homes, to care at home, and in community settings. That’s because it’s what people want, and it’s less costly. Our government is investing any scarce new health dollars to support our seniors at home — for initiatives like the adult day program at Providence Healthcare.”
— Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“The adult day program at Providence Healthcare gives caregivers peace of mind and provides seniors with activities that promote well-being and help them live at home. This is very much in line with our government’s Seniors Strategy, which focuses on helping seniors to stay healthy and live at home longer by providing more home care and community supports.”
— Lorenzo Berardinetti, MPP Scarborough Southwest
“As the population ages, more people are seeking care outside hospitals and within their community, close to home. And the health care system should reflect this need. This additional funding targets some of the most vulnerable populations in Toronto and is working to ensure our loved ones are getting the right care, in the right place, and at the right time.”
— Angela Ferrante, Board Chair Toronto Central LHIN
“Giving seniors the services and supports they need for healthy, active, and independent living is the core commitment of Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors. Investing in home care is another example of how we are delivering on this commitment.”

Pinnacle of Vandalism (A selection of thoughts, feelings, and musings) by R. William Patry Review by Donna Kakonge

There is a lot going on in Patry’s book, the same way thoughts, feelings and musings tend to flow from us as humans. I will choose to focus on one of the more striking things I find about Patry’s book and that being his portrayal of women, particularly the second poem “Isis.”

I recall back in 1992 when Austin Clarke who is dubbed “Canada’s multicultural writer,” came out with In This City. I recall quite a bit of debate happening around that book regarding Clarke’s portrayal of women. At the time, I remained silent, wondering what exactly was the problem and I did read the book of short stories. I was impressed that at least Clarke attempted to write from a women’s perspective. Patry on the other hand is not a multicultural writer in a visible minority sense, however, through the poem “Isis,” which has long been associated with African culture, Patry successfully depicts an image of a strong black woman and his own personal mystery with the Isis figure. The next poem that follows is “Cut the Deck” and one can imply that Patry’s association with the Isis figure as he writes about it in this book comes through musings that may be linked with the tarot. Here is an excerpt: Read the rest of this entry »

Improving Driver’s Licence Renewal for Seniors

January 28, 2014

Ontario Government Committed to Supporting Seniors

Ontario is enhancing its driver’s licence renewal program to help seniors who are fit to drive renew their licences.

Starting April 21, 2014, drivers aged 80 and over will no longer have to complete a written knowledge test. Instead, they will participate in a shorter, simpler renewal program that includes:

  • a vision test
  • a driver record review
  • an improved, in-class group education session
  • two short, in-class screening exercises

The new screening exercises are simple, non-computerized tasks that help identify drivers who may need further assessment, such as a road test or medical review. Samples of both exercises are available online.

Enhancements to the senior driver’s licence renewal program are supported by the latest scientific research and are part of the Ontario government’s plan to make it easier for people to access important government services, when and where they need them

QUICK FACTS

  • The new renewal session will take approximately 90 minutes, or less than half the time of the current program.
  • Ontario drivers age 80 and over must renew their licences every two years.
  • In 2012, 117,237 drivers age 80 and older attended a group education session.
  • Ontario is the only province in Canada with a mandatory education component for senior driver’s licence renewal.
  • The current cost of renewal for seniors will remain the same at $32.There is no additional cost for a road test.

QUOTES

“Ontario’s senior driver programs aim to keep seniors driving for as long as they can safely do so. These changes will help seniors stay on the roads safely with a more streamlined renewal process, while also better flagging those who shouldn’t be driving.”
— Glen Murray, Minister of Transportation, Minister of Infrastructure
“We want to help seniors stay connected and active in the communities they helped to build. Ontario’s senior driver programs will help senior drivers who are fit to drive, and pose no risk, renew their licences faster and with less stress.”
— Mario Sergio, Minister Responsible for Seniors Affairs
“Driving plays an important role in helping seniors maintain their independence. These changes strike the right balance in keeping everyone safe on the road by using evidence-based methods to test the ability to drive safely.”
— Susan Eng, CARP vice-president, advocacy

Ontario Power Generation Fined $75,000 For Failure to Comply With Law‏

Court Bulletin

Ontario Power Generation Fined $75,000 For Failure to Comply With Law

January 27, 2014

WHITBY, ON – Ontario Power Generation has pleaded guilty to failing to follow notification procedures required under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and fined $75,000.

Between August 20 and August 31, 2011, three workers were assigned the task of dismantling shielding canopies and other equipment at the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station on Holt Road South in Bowmanville. One of the workers was cutting the frame of the canopies with a torch when he saw a liquid substance emerge along with white smoke. It was later learned that the frame contained lead shots and that the worker had melted one or more of those shots. Neither the supervisor nor the workers were aware of the presence of the lead shots prior to beginning the work.

Lead exposure in concentrations that exceed the prescribed occupational exposure limits for lead can be hazardous to a person’s health. The workers were wearing face shields appropriate for torch-cutting activities but because the supervisor was not aware of the presence of lead shot in the frame, the workers were not wearing respiratory protection required for use when exposure to lead is possible. As a result of the lead content in the lead shot and the lack of respiratory equipment in use at the time of the work, the workers were potentially exposed to lead-containing particles.

On or about October 11, 2011, two of the workers filed claims with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board in respect of an occupational illness potentially resulting from their possible exposure to lead that August. OPG was advised of the claim at that time but OPG did not, within the required four days, provide the required notice to the Ministry of Labour, contrary to section 52(2) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

OPG pleaded to failing to comply with the required notification and was fined $75,000. The fine was imposed by Justice of the Peace Allison Forestall.

In addition to the fine, the court imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.

  • Help patients remain mobile by providing support to maintain their independence and return home;
  • Provide nurses and other health staff with advanced training in geriatrics;
  • Include a communal dining and activity room.

Making strategic investments in improving health care is part of the Ontario government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

Statement by Minister Yasir Naqvi on the Minimum Wage Advisory Panel’s Final Report

January 27, 2014

Today, Yasir Naqvi, Minister of Labour, released the following statement on the Minimum Wage Advisory Panel’s final report:”We have received the Minimum Wage Advisory Panel’s final report on how the province’s minimum wage should be set in the future.

I want to thank Professor Anil Verma and the other five panel members for their dedication and hard work on this report.

The panel travelled across Ontario, holding public consultations in 10 cities and heard from almost 450 organizations, businesses, and individual Ontarians. I also want to thank participants for their input, and suggestions on this important issue.

With representation from the business, labour and anti-poverty sectors, the panel has delivered a consensus report. We are reviewing its recommendations and will bring our plan forward shortly.

The minimum wage has increased 50 per cent in Ontario since 2003, from $6.85 to $10.25 per hour, taking it from one of the lowest in Canada to one of the highest. This report will guide our efforts to ensure a fair minimum wage for Ontario’s workers, improve living standards for the most vulnerable and keep businesses competitive.

Ensuring a fair and predictable minimum wage system is part of our plan to work together as One Ontario, to build a successful, vital province where everyone has the opportunity to connect, contribute and achieve their goals.”

Minister Meets with Economic Advisory Panel

January 27, 2014

Ontario Focused on Strengthening the Economy and Creating Jobs

Ontario is continuing to build on its three-part plan to grow the economy and create jobs by consulting with some of the most experienced business, academic and labour leaders in the province.

Finance Minister Charles Sousa met with the Economic Advisory Panel today to discuss ways the government can help generate long-term growth in Ontario.

The panel provides advice in the areas of job creation and attracting investment. It also focuses on the delivery of public services and how to ensure taxpayers receive the greatest value for their dollars.

The panel will also discuss how to encourage companies to take advantage of opportunities to expand, innovate and improve productivity. Following the recession, many companies are still holding back on making investments that ultimately lead to economic growth and job creation.

Planning for long-term growth is part of the government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • The Economic Advisory Panel was established in 2008 to respond to the global economic downturn.
  • Many private-sector economists are anticipating continued growth in Ontario’s economy. On average, forecasters expect real GDP growth of 2.2 per cent in 2014 and 2.6 per cent in 2015. Gains in exports and business investment, along with a continued rise in consumer spending could be key contributors.
  • Ontario real GDP rose 0.6 per cent (2.3 per cent annualized rate) in the third quarter of 2013, following a gain of 0.7 per cent (2.9 per cent annualized) in the second quarter.
  • Ontario’s real GDP has increased 9.8 per cent since a recessionary low in the second quarter of 2009.

QUOTES

“Ontario’s economic growth has strengthened in recent quarters despite a challenging global economic environment. But we can not be faint of heart and we can not falter. I am calling on businesses to take advantage of opportunities to expand and invest in Ontario’s future.”

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Investigation Update‏

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Investigation Update

January 27, 2014

Ontario Encouraging Swine Industry to Maintain Strict Biosecurity Protocols

Ontario has confirmed a second case of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) and a third is under investigation. Both are in the Chatham-Kent region.

PED is usually fatal for very young pigs while older pigs can recover. The virus does not affect food safety, nor is it a risk to human health or other animals. Pork remains a safe choice for consumers to eat.

After PED began circulating in the U.S. last year, the province and the pork industry worked together to implement extensive education programs to increase awareness of the disease and promote biosecurity protocols. Since the virus is highly contagious, its presence in Canada is not unexpected and more cases are expected in the coming days and weeks.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food (OMAF) continues to work closely with the affected producers, the pork industry, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to deal with this new challenge and ensure mitigation strategies are implemented. Short- and long-term actions that involve all parts of the industry are being undertaken to stop the spread of the virus.

All those involved in the swine industry are encouraged to maintain strict biosecurity protocols and contact a veterinarian immediately if they see animals showing signs of illness. Under Ontario’s Animal Health Act, 2009, veterinarians are required to immediately report any findings that identify a serious risk to animal health.

QUICK FACTS

  • PED is not a risk to human health or food safety.
  • After circulating widely in Europe and Asia, the virus was first seen in the U.S. in April 2013 and is now known to be in at least 23 states. Canada’s first case was identified last week in Middlesex County.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“Pork remains a safe choice for consumers. Ontario farmers always roll up their sleeves and find ways to overcome obstacles, be it fluctuations in weather, or a disease like PED. And our government is here to help.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier and Minister of Agriculture and Food
“I understand this is a challenging time for Ontario’s pork industry. In concert with Ontario Pork, my office is reviewing our mitigation strategies to ensure we have the right tools to limit the spread of PED.”
— Dr. Greg Douglas, Chief Veterinarian for Ontario
“Now that a second case of PED has been confirmed in the province, the scope and urgency of our efforts have changed significantly. After observing the devastating impact of the virus in the U.S. pork industry, we know an immediate collaborative response is required by all partners of the value chain including government. We are dedicated to putting a strategy and measures in place that will aid in the containment of PED virus.”

Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care Delivering Better Care and Value

Two years after the launch of Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care, the province continues to transform health care to provide better patient care and better value for health dollars.

Ontario is building on the Action Plan with a commitment to provide better support for Personal Support Workers to strengthen their recruitment and retention in the home care sector.

The government will also embed meaningful patient engagement in the health care system through enhancements to the Excellent Care for All Act, and will measure progress when it comes to patient relations by hearing and responding to patient complaints in a clear, structured and consistent way across the healthcare system.

Ontario has made significant progress on all of the initiatives set out in the Action Plan, including:

 

 

Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care is part of the government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • The federal government has cut Ontario’s transfer payments by $640 million. Ontario is also getting $300 million less than it would have if health care transfers to Ontario had grown by six per cent as they did on average for the rest of the country.
  • 47 community Health Links serve half of Ontario.

Ontario Government’s Action Plan Benefiting Seniors and Their Caregivers

Ontario is making it easier for seniors to stay safe, active and engaged in their communities.

One year after its launch, the province’s seniors and their caregivers are seeing results from Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors. The plan is focused on addressing the growing needs of the province’s aging population and providing seniors with better access to health care, quality resources and improved safety and security.

The province has delivered on many commitments laid out in the Action Plan, including:

  • The Age-Friendly Community Planning Guide - a resource to help municipalities develop physical and social environments that support independent and active living to help seniors stay connected to their communities.
  • The Finding Your Way program – the first of its kind in Canada, the program was developed in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Ontario. It offers a range of tools to educate and empower seniors, families, caregivers, police officers and the broader community in recognizing and responding to seniors who have wandered or gone missing.
  • The Seniors Community Grant Program - the grant program aims to give seniors more opportunities to participate in their communities by providing funding to not-for-profit community groups for projects that encourage greater social inclusion, volunteerism and community engagement. Applications for this program will open February 21, 2014.

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Investigation

January 23, 2014

Province Taking Steps to Protect Pork Industry

Ontario is conducting an investigation on a hog farm in Middlesex County after a suspected finding of porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus.

The virus does not affect food safety, and poses no risk to human health or other animals. Pork remains a safe choice for consumers to eat.

At this time, the source of the virus is unknown. The affected farm followed strict biosecurity protocols, but experience in other jurisdictions shows that PED is extremely difficult to contain and more cases are possible.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food (OMAF) is working closely with the producer, the pork industry, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to control the spread of the virus.  The producer is fully cooperating with all parties in the ongoing assessment.

Biosecurity remains the best tool to protect swine herds. All pork producers are encouraged to maintain strict biosecurity protocols and contact their veterinarian immediately if animals show any signs of illness. Under Ontario’s Animal Health Act, veterinarians are required to immediately report any significant herd health changes to OMAF.

QUICK FACTS

  • PED does not pose a human health or a food safety risk.
  • The virus is widespread in Europe, China and most recently in the U.S.

QUOTES

“PED is not a human health or food safety risk. Pork continues to be a safe and healthy choice for consumers. Ontario will continue to work closely with its producers to minimize the impact of this virus. “
— Dr. Greg Douglas, Chief Veterinarian for Ontario
“Ontario Pork is working closely with provincial and federal levels of government to ensure that the farm identified has the necessary support and resources to deal with this disease and contain it. All Ontario and Canadian swine farms are extremely vulnerable to this disease and we would urge all producers to immediately review and strengthen their existing biosecurity and disinfection protocols. We will continue to monitor the situation and update our producers when more information becomes available.”
— Amy Cronin, Chair, Ontario Pork

Improving Access to Mental Health Services in Ontario

January 23, 2014

Premier Attends Grand Opening of New Hospital Campus in Hamilton

Premier Kathleen Wynne, along with Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, celebrated the grand opening of the Juravinski Centre for Integrated Healthcare in Hamilton today.

The government has funded the $581 million construction cost of this new centre. It is designed to help do away with the stigma of mental illness by integrating treatment, rehabilitation, and education and research with other acute medical services.

The new centre will help patients and their families get better care by:

  • Offering patients with mental health issues and substance abuse issues treatment for both at the same time;
  • Increasing access to diagnostic and treatment services, forensic services, geriatric psychiatry and mental health rehabilitation;
  • Providing additional medical services including diagnostic imaging, internal medicine, and programs dealing with the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

Investing in community health care is part of the government’s economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

QUICK FACTS

  • The Juravinski Centre will feature state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services – such as MRI and breast screening – that will help reduce wait times in the area.
  • The centre will hire at least 400 new staff over the next six years.
  • The government has 23 new hospitals built or underway since 2003.

— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario

The new Juravinski Centre for Integrated Healthcare is designed to treat mental illness as any other health issue and to make sure people can benefit from these services as a part of the community and not be isolated from it.”
— Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“The Margaret and Charles Juravinski Centre for Integrated Healthcare will be a healing place for the mind and body, but also a place of scholarship and learning. Our work will help those suffering from mental illness and addiction to recover, avoid stigma and enable them to return successfully to the community.
