Disclosure of Expenses

The North West LHIN is one of 14 Local Health Integration Networks that have been established by the Government of Ontario as community-based organizations to plan, co-ordinate, integrate and fund health care services at the local level including hospitals, long-term care homes, community care access centres, community support services, community mental health and addictions services and community health centres.

The North West LHIN covers 47% of Ontario’s total land mass and is home to 235,046 people (2006), or just 2% of Ontario’s population. Our population density of 0.5 people per square kilometre is the lowest in the province.

The North West LHIN is a mix of urban, rural and remote communities with boundaries that extend from just west of White River to the Manitoba border and from Hudson Bay in the north to the United States border in the south. The communities in our planning zones boast a rich diversity of values, ethnicity, language and socio-demographic characteristics. 

The North West LHIN is committed to being open and transparent with its stakeholders and the general public.  Further to the LHIN's commitment is our compliance with the Public Sector Expenses Review Act, 2009. This act was implemented on November 30, 2009 and was created to strengthen and reinforce accountability, transparency and oversight of government expense claims. As per direction received from the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, the LHIN has created this page which details the expense reports of Board Members and Senior Staff as they engage with our stakeholders in managing the local health care system. All expenses are in accordance with the government's Travel, Meal & Hospitality Expenses Directives.
