To achieve our vision of “Empowered People. Thriving, Caring Communities”, the Strategic Plan outlines how our services are delivered today, our strategic goals, and the desired outcomes for each of the stakeholder groups that we serve. Our plan will help us stay focused on continuously improving access to services through 211. We can help in the ongoing system design and implementation of a more efficient, flexible, and responsive public service delivery system through the data we collect on service availability, needs, service gaps, and barriers, improving access and quality of care for all Ontarians.
