The LHINs have built a strong foundation of transparency, performance and accountability as these are fundamental expectations of what Ontarians want from their health care system.  The LHINs strive to ensure that health care dollars are spent efficiently and effectively, yielding the best results possible.  

The LHINs operate within an accountability framework that is comprised of the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006 or LHSIA, the Memorandum of Understanding or MOU, and the Ministry-LHIN Performance Agreement or MLPA.
