Get involved – Local health coalition meetings in your region

The Ontario Health Coalition links up citizen groups and labour organizations across the province. Local coalitions are directly involved in their communities, often playing a watchdog role and advocating for better access and quality of services. Many are presently planning all-candidate forums in advance of the October 6 provincial election.

Some OPSEU locals are already involved. Others may want to attend a meeting in their community and get more involved. It’s an opportunity to share perspectives and build links between those who provide care and members of the community who are looking to protect and enhance health care services.

Many OPSEU locals also voluntarily donate money to support the work of the Ontario Health Coalition.
