Protecting Critical Public Services
Investing $764 million to assist municipalities with the cost of land ambulance operations
Our PC government is working with its municipal partners to build strong, thriving communities and making significant, additional investments to enhance and protect the critical public services Ontarians rely on everyday.
At the 2022 Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) conference in Ottawa, the PC government announced nearly $764 million in funding to assist municipalities with the cost of land ambulance operations. This represents an average increase of five per cent provincially compared to 2021-22 funding levels.
We’re also expanding patient care models for eligible 9-1-1 patients to provide them timely access to appropriate treatment in the community and help reduce unnecessary emergency department visits. This includes expanding these models to different patient groups, such as people with diabetes and epilepsy, and implement a new treat and release model with recommendations to patients for appropriate follow-up care.
We’ll continue to work shoulder to shoulder with our municipal partners to deliver a stronger health system, world class transportation infrastructure and attainable housing for all Ontarians.
The people of Ontario are counting on all levels of government to come together and get it done for them.
