Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are governed by an appointed Board of Directors and bound by accountability agreements with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC). Each Board member is appointed by an Order-in-Council, selected using a merit-based process where all candidates are assessed for a fit between skills and abilities and the needs of each respective LHIN. This process is transparent and consistent with clear and understandable guidelines applied consistently to all appointments.
The Central West LHIN has a compliment of nine Board members who are expected to possess relevant expertise, experience, leadership skills, and have an understanding of local health issues, needs and priorities. Members of the Board serve for a period of three years and may be reappointed for a second and final term. To help identify and recommend future members of the Board, the Central West LHIN will, periodically, issue a Public Notice for expressions of interest which contains information on how, to whom and by when interested individuals can submit both a letter of interest and updated resume. Meanwhile, those interested in exploring a unique opportunity to help transform the local health care system can do so at any time by applying through the Public Appointments Secretariat (PAS) website. The PAS website includes a full listing and descriptions of all government agencies, including Local Health Integration Networks, and a "How to Apply" section.
