Member Issues Forum

Wednesday, May 8
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

At this year’s members’ issues forum, we will ask you to come with your questions around current issues in the sector. We expect to have a robust discussion among members and staff on key issues, such as Bill 74 implementation. Questions members have been asking around system transformation include:

  • What do I need to know if I want to be an early adopter?
  • Who should I reach out to as potential partners?
  • What if I am asked to join a team, but I don’t want to?
  • If we become a part of an OHT, how can we ensure that our sectors’ needs are being met?
  • How will funding be distributed?

We will discuss the implications of changes and ask members to share their early experiences.

In addition, as we develop our pre-budget asks for 2020, we will ask members at the forum for their feedback on the themes and key issues we will be developing for our pre-budget submission.
