Dear Mr. Gamble:

Thank you for your continued partnership in supporting the effective delivery of essential emergency health services programs during this unprecedented time.

I am pleased to advise you that the Ministry of Health will provide the Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board up to $600,600 in one-time funding for the 2020-21 funding year to support the temporary pandemic pay Initiative as part of the COVID-19 response in the emergency health services sector.

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

Thank you for your dedication and commitment to improving ambulance services in Ontario and for your ongoing dedication and commitment to addressing the healthcare needs of Ontarians as we modernize and strengthen our public health care system.
