Expanding Physiotherapy for Seniors and Patients

On April 18, 2013 the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care announced that more than 200,000 additional seniors and patients across the province will benefit from improved access to high-quality physiotherapy, exercise and fall prevention classes. The LHIN is continuing to work with the Ministry and local health service providers to ensure that people continue to have access to these vital services.

An important part of this work is engaging stakeholders through various means as the implementation rolls out. The LHIN is using this webpage to share information and keep our communities, providers and partners as up-to-date and informed as possible.

For more information about how Ontario is providing more seniors with access to exercise and physiotherapy, please visit:
