Abstract

This paper examines whether the healthcare system in Ontario can integrate the principles of public participation and citizen engagement with the regionalization of health authorities based on an extensive literature review, case studies, and personal interviews. The findings reveal that the goals of public participation and citizen engagement can be reconciled with the goals of cost containment and efficiency by instituting regional health authorities.
