Understanding the Significant Changes proposed by Bill 160, Strengthening Quality and Accountability for Patients Act, 2017
Bill 160, which is currently proceeding through the Ontario legislature, will, if passed, affect individuals working in and with Ontario’s health care system by making comprehensive amendments to several health sector statutes, enacting three new health sector statutes, and repealing five health sector statutes, including the Independent Health Facilities Act and the Private Hospitals Act.
