MPAC - Ontario's Property Market Experts

MPAC is proud to share three documents with you today. 

The first document is our Annual Report. The past year’s focus has been on asking ourselves who we are as an organization, what role we play in Ontario and looking at how we can do more to help communities overcome obstacles that impact municipal and business operations. With the province-wide assessment on pause, MPAC took the year as an opportunity to focus on the other ways we provide value, and reflect on how we can improve our services. Not only were we able to maintain a 0% increase to the total municipal levy for the second year in a row, we were also able to continue our work on capturing new assessments by working closely with municipal partners on innovative technology such as enhancing Municipal Connect, our property data-sharing platform. I am also proud to announce that in 2021, we launched our new Strategic Plan, building on MPAC’s success – delivering value, beyond assessments alone.

You will also find included MPAC’s Financial Statements for the Year Ended December 31, 2021. This is being provided as an addendum to the Annual Report above.

The third document is new to MPAC this year and is an outcome from the Ontario Government’s 2021 Fall Economic Statement: our Corporate Performance Report. MPAC is committed to continuing to find ways to showcase our accountability and transparency. This document provides a wealth of statistics on how well we are meeting our goals on areas such as capturing new assessment, the proportion of property assessments that are accepted without going to appeal, customer contact centre satisfaction and many more.

Ontario Launches New Tool to Connect People to Nurses and Other Health Services from Anywhere at Any Time

Health Connect Ontario makes it easier for Ontarians to access timely care and information by phone, chat and online.

TORONTO — As part of its plan to stay open, the Ontario government and Ontario Health have launched Health Connect Ontario, a new tool that will allow Ontarians to call or chat online with a registered nurse and find the health care services and information they need all in one, easy-to-use website.

Health Connect Ontario will replace the former Telehealth Ontario, adding enhanced online tools and allowing individuals to call 811 or visit the website 24 hours a day, seven days a week to get health advice, help navigate health services and find information. This will help Ontarians avoid unnecessary visits to emergency departments and unneeded delays in accessing care, helping to preserve hospital capacity for when it is needed most so that the province can stay open.

“As part of our government’s plan to stay open by building a better, more resilient health care system, we’re connecting Ontarians with nurses and the high-quality health services they need from anywhere at any time,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “This new modern service offers more choice and convenience for Ontarians seeking care and information, whether they have a primary care provider or not. It will help keep more people out of hospital and preserve beds for those who need them most.”

Health Connect Ontario brings patients to a single source where they can easily:

  • Speak to or chat online with a registered nurse
  • Get help with finding a primary care provider if they don’t have one
  • Get an initial assessment and health advice
  • Use a symptom assessment tool to understand their health concerns and how to access care
  • Get connected to mental health and addictions services
  • Find local health services, such as home and community care or caregiver support
  • Get connected to a specialized health professional if they have concerns about food and healthy eating, breastfeeding or how to quit smoking
  • Get general guidance through their health care journey

By calling 811, Ontarians will be able to speak to a qualified health professional, such as a registered nurse, day or night, in English and French, with translation support also offered in other languages. Any calls made to Telehealth Ontario will be automatically re-directed to the new service.

The province will expand Health Connect Ontario’s features and offerings over time to better coordinate care and services to Ontarians. Ontario will continue to work closely with health sector partners to harness their expertise and insights on how best to enhance Health Connect Ontario to better serve Ontarians.

“Health Connect Ontario has been designed in collaboration with patients and communities from across the province, creating a service that provides convenient, real-time access to health care information and services,” said Matthew Anderson, President and CEO, Ontario Health. “This is part of our commitment to ensuring services are patient-centred and promote equitable access to health care for Ontarians."

Health Connect Ontario and 811 are for non-urgent health care information, advice and referrals, and personal health information of people using the services is secure and protected at all times. This service will not replace 911, which should still be used for a medical emergency.
