On January 31, 2017, Dr. Eric Hoskins, Ontario's Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, made a transfer order under subsection 40(1) of LHSIA that transferred all assets, liabilities, rights, obligations and employees of the Ontario Association of Community Care Access Centres (OACCAC) to HSSOntario. The Local Health Integration Networks Collaborative (LHINC) and Local Health Integration Networks Office (LSSO) were also transferred to HSSOntario.
