We are led by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and Cancer Care Ontario. The expertise of each organization helps us to achieve our goal of improving the quality and consistency of care in each of the health service areas.

We are also supported by a Secretariat and a number of advisory bodies.

The College of Physicians Surgeons of Ontario

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario regulates the medical profession and defines standards of practice in the public interest. It assesses practice environments and utilizes a peer-led assessment model focused on quality improvement and provider education. This allows them to work closely with their membership, using clinical expertise to inform their work.

Cancer Care Ontario

Cancer Care Ontario uses performance reporting and funding levers to drive a provincial quality agenda. It manages provincial program implementation and engages health professionals, ensuring that programs are informed by clinical expertise and evidence-based practice.
