Now Is The Time. The pandemic related challenges of the last three years shone a light on myriad issues that have existed for many years. Inequitable access to care, underfunded models of care, systemic racism, structural barriers to care, and a lack of person-centred hospice palliative care in all settings are but a few of the challenges. Now Is The Time for action.
Now Is The Time to implement the goals articulated in the Provincial Framework for Palliative Care to act on Leadership and Accountability, Funding, Provider Education and Mentorship, Integrated Care, Person and Family-Centred Care, Evidence and Data, and Public Awareness. Now Is The Time to implement recommendations and solutions that will ensure patients and families have equitable access to high-quality hospice palliative care called in call care settings.

As conference delegates gather from across Ontario and other parts of Canada, we are gathering on lands that have been home to First Nations Peoples from time immemorial. Hospice Palliative Care Ontario acknowledges that our conference taking place in what we now call Richmond Hill, is on the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Mississauga and Chippewa Nations of the Williams Treaty. We also recognize that Richmond Hill is on part of the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat.
