Local Aboriginal Health Committee (LAHC)

The NE LHIN’s Local Aboriginal Health Committee (LAHC) was established to advise the NE LHIN on health service priorities within Aboriginal (First Nation, Métis, urban, rural) communities, and opportunities for the integration and coordination of health care services. The LAHC and NE LHIN work collaboratively to identify targeted engagement activities on the specific needs of Aboriginal populations.
