Reports and submissions

January 2016 - Pre-budget submission

Health care spending in Ontario remains the largest government expenditure. Health Nexus is putting forward pre-budget advice that aims to build on the government’s commitment to ensuring health system sustainability through a focus on health promotion and disease prevention.

We are asking, that the government:

  • Continue to build on its work to promote greater collaboration across Ministries and build upon these initiatives to create a formal and sustained government-wide Health in All Policies (HiAP).
  • Maintain and strengthen its investment in health promotion, including programs aimed at supporting maternal health and early childhood development.
  • Leverage the expertise of Ontario’s Health Promotion Resource Centres as it works to strengthen patient-centred health care in Ontario.
