Dear Mr. Killah:

Re:Ministry Agreement with Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board (the “Agreement”)

I am pleased to advise that the Ministry of Health (the ministry) will provide Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board up to $250,000 in additional base funding for 2023/24 to support your non-ambulance transportation for medically-stable patients project. This will bring the total maximum base funding available under the Agreement for the 2023/24 funding year to $550,000.

The Assistant Deputy Minister of the Emergency Health Services Division will write to Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board shortly concerning the terms and conditions governing this funding.

Thank you for your continued dedication and commitment to improve access to care for medically-stable patients in communities in Northern Ontario. We continue to rely on your strong leadership in alignment with the plan to build a modern and sustainable public health care system and ensure the ongoing provision of front-line services that patients rely on every day.

Sylvia Jones
Deputy Premier and Minister of Health
