In anticipation of the First Ministers’ meetings in Ottawa this week, the Ontario Health Coalition is releasing a briefing note on provincial transparency and accountability in health spending. The coalition takes issue with the Eves government’s attempts to win more health spending without accountability. The briefing note outlines the enormous difficulty in accessing spending data in Ontario, the total lack of public consultation on critical health reforms, the use of directed funds for other purposes, and unreported profit-taking that characterize Ontario’s health systems.
