Ontario's 42nd Parliament
07 Jun 2018 - Present

The 2018 Ontario general election was held on June 7, 2018 to elect the 124 members of the 42nd Parliament of Ontario.

The Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, led by Doug Ford, won a majority government with 76 of the 124 seats in the legislature. The incumbent Liberal government was effectively swept out of Parliament, securing only 7 seats in the legislature and consequently having to surrender official party status.

1.12.10 - “[L]isten to front-line medical professionals, including nurses and doctors, to ensure that long-term stable funding is available to do the capacity planning that our health care system deserves”


A 2019 report by the Ontario Hospital Association suggests that the fiscal concerns of front-line workers are being ignored. While the Ontario government annualized health care funding (see more here), the Ontario Hospital Association has argued that the current fiscal situation cannot be sustained, and there is no evidence that the Ontario government has increased its engagement with front-line medical staff.

“[A report from the Ontario Hospital Association] states that if the PC government doesn’t first address the severe budget and capacity pressures currently facing Ontario hospitals, it may actually worsen the hallway healthcare problem it has promised to eliminate.”
