Ontario’s Excellent Care for All Strategy

Health care matters to every Ontarian. That’s why the government has taken important steps to improve the quality of Ontario’s health care system and make sure every health care dollar is used to provide the best possible care.

Ontario’s new Excellent Care for All strategy means that:

  1. The patient is at the centre of the health care system.
  2. Decisions about patient care are based on the best evidence and standards.
  3. The health care system is focused on the quality of care and the best use of resources.
  4. The main goal of the health care system is to get better and better at what it does.”
