Disclosure of Expenses*

The Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (Waterloo Wellington LHIN) is one of 14 LHINs established by the Government of Ontario as community-based organizations to plan, fund, and integrate health services at the local level, including hospitals, long-term care homes, community support services, community care access centres, community health centres, and addictions and mental health services.

The Waterloo Wellington LHIN is the sixth fastest growing LHIN and home to approximately 775,000 residents, representing 5.6 per cent of Ontario’s total population. It is expected that the Waterloo Wellington LHIN will experience a population growth of 16.2 per cent between 2009 and 2022.

The Waterloo Wellington LHIN covers approximately 4,800 square kilometres of land. Almost 90 per cent of the Waterloo Wellington LHIN’s total geographic space is rural, and 90 per cent of residents live in urban areas. The Waterloo Wellington LHIN stretches from Proton Station in the north to Ayr in the south, Clifford at its most westerly point and Erin to the east. It also encompasses the major urban centers of Cambridge, Guelph, Kitchener and Waterloo.

The Waterloo Wellington LHIN is committed to being open and transparent with stakeholders and the general public. Further to the Waterloo Wellington LHIN's commitment is our compliance with the Public Sector Expenses Review Act, 2009. Implemented on November 30, 2009, this act was created to strengthen and reinforce accountability, transparency, and oversight of government expense claims. As per direction received from the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, this webpage includes Board Member and Senior Staff expense reports, as they engage with our stakeholders in managing the local health system. All expenses are in accordance with the government's Travel, Meal & Hospitality Expenses Directives.

* Expenses are posted by fiscal year quarter as indicated by the dates below. Please note that reports reflect expenses paid in the quarter although they may relate to expenses incurred at other times.
