Bill or Act:
Health Protection and Promotion Act
Summary of Proposal:
The Health Protection and Promotion Act (HPPA) specifies the organization and delivery of public health in Ontario. The HPPA requires Ontario's 36 boards of health (also called public health units) to oversee, provide or ensure the provision of public health programs and services, as specified in the HPPA, its regulations, and in the Ontario Public Health Standards published by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.
Changes to the regulations under the HPPA would modernize them and ensure public health programs and services remain current to protect the health of Ontarians. There are proposed amendments to 11 regulations under the HPPA which are outlined in the summary document.
Note that certain changes to regulations will require corresponding changes to short form wording for offences under the Provincial Offences Act. The Ministry intends to proceed separately to make those changes under the Provincial Offences Act regulation.
