CHC Associations

Alliance for Healthier Communities

The Alliance for Healthier Communities is Ontario’s voice for community-governed primary health care. They represent over 120 community-governed primary health care organizations which include Ontario’s Community Health Centres (CHCs), Aboriginal Health Access Centres (AHACs), and Community Family Health Teams (CFHTs). Community governance enables health services to be more easily oriented towards what community members identify as their most important needs.

The Alliance for Healtier Communities, as well as its members, believe good health is much more than something you get in a medical clinic. They believe that better health begins in our homes, in our schools, in our workplaces, and in the communities where we live. Their goal is therefore to work towards a complete state of well-being for individuals, families, and entire communities.

Canadian Association of Community Health Centres

The Canadian Association of Community Health Centres (CACHC) is the federal voice for Community Health Centres and community-oriented, people-centred primary health care across Canada.

Ontario Hospital Association

The OHA’s vision is to achieve a high performing health system. But it’s only through its members – the for-profit and not-for-profit organizations involved in Ontario health care delivery, including approximately 151 Ontario hospitals – that their vision can be met. Their mission is thus to support them: by giving them high-quality products and services, by championing innovation and performance improvement, and by advancing and influencing health system policy in Ontario.
