Welcome and Overview

Representing a diverse group of local residents, health care providers and organizations from Guelph and the surrounding area, the Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team will provide a new way of organizing and delivering care to our community. The next step towards making this a reality was approved by the province in November 2019. Learn more at guelphandareaoht.com 

We are now in the planning stages to identify health care priorities to guide our future actions. Part of that planning includes defining our direction and prioritizing topics we need to focus on as a community.

This survey will help us better understand your experience with the local health care system. Please don't include any identifying information such as your name. The information collected will be shared with organizations participating in Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team work, including core partner organizations, working group members, and consultants supporting the engagement. This information will be used to inform the vision and direction for our community. The best way we can create a health system that works for everyone is to co-create it with our diverse community.
