Background Information

The Réseau was created to meet the requirements of the MOHLTC for a French Language Planning Entity in Northern Ontario, as identified in the Local Health System Integration Act (2006). 

As a French Language Planning Health Entity, the Réseau has a clear mandate to advise the North East and the North West LHINs on all questions related to health care for Francophones living in Northern Ontario.

Health Hubs

One of the responsibilities of the Réseau is to find ways of engaging the Francophone community of Northern Ontario. To meet this goal, the Réseau created the Carrefours santé (Health Hubs) to encourage citizen involvement in the planning of health services in French for Francophones.

The Réseau also works with existing community groups and tables to seek community input on the planning of health services for Francophones.
