In February 2008, a new Strategic Human Resources Provincial Leadership Council (SHRPLC) was established. The SHRPLC is comprised of representatives from hospital senior management, a University, a Community College, a Local Health Integration Network, long-term care, and a Community Care Access Centre.

In early 2009, the SHRPLC released the OHA Provincial Health HR Strategic Plan 2008-2011. Click here to view.
The strategic plan sets out the direction that the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) is taking and the goals we have set out for the next three years to support Ontario health care organizations in creating the best people and organizational environment to achieve optimum patient care outcomes. Three strategic directions guide our vision for an accessible, sustainable, safe, and high performing health care system in Ontario, with a goal to have the right number of health care providers with the right qualifications, in the right place and at the right time. The directions include:
• Strategic Direction #1 – Collaborative Health Human Resources Planning
Under this strategic direction, our goals will be to improve provincial health human resources strategic planning and ensure the appropriate supply, distribution and utilization of health care professionals.
• Strategic Direction #2 – Evidence-Based Human Resources Management
Under this direction, we intend to advance the system-wide adoption of leading, evidence-based strategic health human resources policies, programs and practices.
• Strategic Direction #3 – Visioning for the Future of Health Care
This direction will see us doing long-range planning by aligning health human resources requirements with future models of health care.
