The Healthcare Staff Shortage in Ontario

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and worsened the gaps in the Canadian healthcare system. An already understaffed system is now under tremendous strain

 

The obvious impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are surgical backlogs and delays in appointments, however, the indirect negative impacts of the pandemic will have lasting impacts on the health of Canadians for years to come. These include:

1. A halt in preventive programs such as cancer screening

2. Worsening health among Indigenous peoples with chronic illnesses

3. Worsening mental health among health care workers just to name a few. 

 

Working together will be the only way to recover and rebuild. 

Solutions to the Healthcare problem

  1. Bring the Practice-Ready Assessment model to Ontario

  2. Equitably increase access to residency training positions for ITPs

  3. Establish the Clinical Assistant occupation as a pathway to licensure for ITPs in Ontario
