Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) - What's in it for my practice?

July 7th online from 8-9 pm. The meeting was very engaging. Don't worry if you missed it. We recorded it and will post it shortly.

Welcome to the New Mississauga-Halton Primary Care Network


Welcome to the new Primary Care Network website for the Mississauga Halton Region. This not-for-profit, volunteer organization was built upon the foundation of a previous Mississauga Halton Primary Care Network that dissolved in the Fall of 2019 having lost it’s funding.


The Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and primary care physicians in the region still felt that a strong Primary Care Network would be critical in our evolving primary care landscape.


What followed was a very meaningful and open knowledge transfer between the guardians of the previous Primary Care Network and a group of motivated volunteer physician organizers. In a series of co-design sessions, a strategy was put forward to rebuild a new Primary Care Network.

An open vote within the Mississauga Halton primary care physician community took place in March of 2020 to establish a board of directors for the new PCN. Shortly after, the COVID-19 pandemic officially landed and new, urgent priorities emerged.

The antecedent primary care structural changes in the region and subsequent pandemic-triggered events have served as an anchor as to why this work is important. This was validated by our first June 2nd, 2020 virtual meeting that was attended by over 300 participants.

Much work to be done

There is much work to be done and we will need the efforts of a community to see that work undertaken. What is clear is that there is significant interest in the community to see this done effectively and responsibly, open in its construction, and accountable to its base.
