Delivering Cancer Care in Ontario

Ontario’s health care system is organized into 14 Regional Cancer Programs, which are funded by Cancer Care Ontario and correspond with the province’s Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs).

The Central Regional Cancer Program provides cancer care within the Central LHIN and oversees the delivery of cancer services for residents of North York, York Region and South Simcoe. The Stronach Regional Cancer Centre at Southlake is the designated cancer centre for this program.

Like other Regional Cancer Programs, the Central Regional Cancer Program is designed to:

  • Ensure that all Ontarians receive a consistently high quality of cancer care, as close to home as possible
  • Address local cancer issues
  • Act locally on provincial quality standards for cancer services
  • Work to continually improve patient access to care, wait times and quality

We deliver full-service cancer care through a network of hospital partners and other service providers, as well as prevention and screening programs to help you stay healthy. This includes a range programs, such as: prevention and screening community education programs; a 1-800 phone line for patients in crisis and hospice palliative care teams that mentor nurses and support other healthcare professionals throughout the region.
