South West LHIN Funding Initiatives

South West LHIN 2017/18 Priorities for Investment Plan

What is the Priorities for Investment (PFI) Plan?

The annual PFI Plan is how the LHIN plans to invest new base (or reoccurring) and one-time funding to support of key objectives and priority initiatives based on our Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) and Ministry-LHIN Accountability Agreement (MLAA) obligations. The LHIN uses a combination of base and one-time funding to make investments, and must do so within provincial conditions placed upon the use of the funds.
