Board of Directors

Delivering better care and healthier communities

Community health centres reflect the understanding that health is within the control of the individual and the community. CHCs are governed by a community-based board to ensure accountability and responsiveness to the needs of their own particular community. Board members represent community residents, clients, and generally reflect the population of the community served. They may also be professionals and others who have expertise in some areas, such as financial management or health policy.

Health centre boards are empowered through the Ontario Business Corporation Act (1990), to carry out their duties and responsibilities. Community health centre boards in Ontario have the same legal responsibilities of financial viability and quality of care and service, as a hospital board, but do not have the formalized structures and processes by legislation (i.e. the Public Hospitals Act). Rather, CHC boards must ensure that quality improvement and financial management responsibilities are met. While CHC boards lack a legislative framework, they have the benefit of control over policy, programming and financial decisions.
