Make Harassment Resolution Process Effective

Amend Ontario Labour Code like what Federal legislature is doing through Bill C-65. Adding "a statement to the effect that the employer will take such disciplinary measures as the employer deems appropriate against any person under the employer’s direction who subjects any employee to sexual harassment" (copied from Bill C-65). Current harassment resolution deals with complainants while the harassers are not in the ...more »

Naturopathic and Osteopathic care for Seniors and Diabetics

It seems that the current medical climate is all pharma and none of it seems to "cure" or get to the root of the medical issue. I think allowing Seniors (over 60) to use and have covered Naturopathic and Osteopathic care from certified heath care professionals would prove to be a positive step forward in health care. From my experience the current General Practitioners only "know" pharma solutions - having used Naturopathic ...more »

Strong Minds for the Future

In Ontario, we have one of the most comprehensive health care systems in the world. In the mental health area, there have been many strides made - specifically as it relates to Children & Youth. We recognize that there are significant gaps in access to mental health support services province-wide. While there has been a successful three-year strategy for children and youth, more needs to be done. Our vision is for ...more »

Strong Sustainable Communities

Submitted by (@cheerphil)

Build healthcare infrastructure within the community

The goal of building strong sustainable communities applies strongly to our ultimate community anchor: our hospitals. Healthcare institutions are major employers. As patients, we use them when we are at our most vulnerable, so their location is a critical part of the planning process. We cannot afford to approve greenfield hospital infrastructure beyond established neighbourhoods. Our communities are aging, and outside ...more »

Telemedicine: Digital Innovation to Expand Access to High-Quality Health Care

Ontario needs to make telemedicine a core part of how health care is delivered in this province. Telemedicine expands care to people who cannot access it, makes it easier to access for those who find getting health care inconvenient or inefficient, such as seniors, and drastically streamlines services to make them more efficient. Delivering on the promise of universal health care is challenging. Hundreds of thousands ...more »

Charge employers for use of sick notes that result in unnecessary visits to the doctor.

Often employers seek sick notes for employees needing a sick day as proof of illness, this practice often results as a tax on the sick as doctors notes are not covered by OHIP, but as well for many short term illness that are 1-3 days long that do not warrant medical intervention. This practice is no doubt a burden upon our healthcare system and working people of this province for the sole reason of employers not placing ...more »

healthcare

If we can design a home very similar to retirement homes for disabled loved ones and caregivers it would open many doors for caregivers. Many Coop buildings have the perfect avenue to help disabled loved ones. Access to a Gym, Kitchen, recreation room and playground. It is already geared to income and affordable. I would love to see a building like ours be reformed into a building with disabled and loved ones so they ...more »

Mental Health Ontario - MHO

I'm hearing that people know there are mental health services available in Ontario, but don't know how to access them or where to begin. We should create a governmental agency called Mental Health Ontario, a one-stop shop for access to care for key mental health services similar to Cancer Care Ontario. This agency would be responsible to drive continuos improvement in prevention, recognition of risk, mental health screening, ...more »
