Citizens’ Reference Panel

The Citizens’ Reference Panel on Health Services and Integration was held in the winter of 2009.

What is the Citizens’ Reference Panel?
It is an advisory committee of 36 citizens selected from across Southeastern Ontario that assisted the LHIN by providing advice. In January, 5,000 homes were randomly selected to receive an invitation to take part in a lottery to select the 36 panelists. Those selected in the stratified sample then took part in three full-day sessions in February and March.
