On June 6, 2019, the Connecting Care Act, 2019 came into force. Over 150 potential Ontario Health Teams made Self-Assessment submissions to the Ministry, and on July 17, 2019, the Ministry announced that 31 groups have been invited to submit a full Application to become an Ontario Health Team, while another 43 groups have been designated as “in development”. The deadline for full Ontario Health Team Applications is October 9, 2019.
