Sub-regions in the Mississauga Halton LHIN
The Mississauga Halton LHIN covers approximately 900 square kilometres and is divided into sub-regions including Halton Hills, Milton, Oakville, North West Mississauga, South West Mississauga, East Mississauga and South Etobicoke. These sub-regions also represent the Mississauga Halton LHIN Health Links and have been in place for several years for planning purposes.
A sub-region is a smaller geographic planning region within the Mississauga Halton LHIN. Sub-regions are now being formalized as part of the Patients First Act, 2016. This approach will not restrict Ontarians as they make their health care decisions.
By looking at care patterns through a smaller, more local lens, Mississauga Halton LHIN will be able to better identify and respond to community needs and ensure that patients across the entire LHIN have access to the care they need, when and where they need it. This includes the needs of Francophone Ontarians, Indigenous communities, newcomers and other individuals and groups within the Mississauga Halton LHIN whose health care needs are unique and who often experience challenges accessing and navigating the health care system.
Physicians, nurses, and other clinicians, as well as patients, caregivers and their families will play a role in planning, priority setting and implementing improvement activities at the Mississauga Halton LHIN sub-region level to ensure the needs of patients and communities are being met.
